"Sonardyne" acoustic system is used for positioning the streamers.

Acoustic sensors are located on the "streamer" line of reception with a pitch of 50 - 800 meters.

Acoustic positioning system, Sonardyne was integrated into the “Gator” navigation system which substantially simplified its control.

In processing the data also are used data marks of DGPS receivers in laying and raising the streamers. I.e. taken into account are the channel offsets in the interval between the acoustic sensors.
