The gravity imager, which will be developed under NEWTON-g and field-tested at Mt. Etna volcano, is composed by an array of microelectromechanical system (MEMS) pixels and an absolute quantum gravimeter (AQG). The main aim of the present document is to define the final configuration of the gravity imager, taking into account the environmental constraints and the gravimetric signature of volcanic processes highlighted in Deliverable 4.1, especially in terms of magnitude, timescale, detection zone and probability of occurrence of these processes.
