LNE-SYRTE is responsible for primary metrology missions of gravimetry in France. At the Trappes site , the iGrav #005 superconducting gravimeters and the CAG transportable absolute atomic gravimeter  are operating. This laboratory has been designed to accommodate other gravimeters for metrological comparisons tests and calibrations [3, 4]. The team's primary activity is to provide the absolute value of g continuously to the neighbouring Kibble balance experiment, previously for Planck constant determination and now for the implementation of the new definition of the kilogram . Research activities are aimed at both improving the accuracy of the CAG, of 20nm.s-2  currently , to a level below 10nm.s-2, and its long term sensitivity, of 0.6nm.s-2 currently, to a level below 0.1nm.s-2.
