Abstract: This paper describes and justifies the necessity of a four-transponder unit for ocean-bottom control net. It should be noted that although in the literature various transponder units have been mentioned — especially the classical three-transponder unit, four-transponder unit, and six-transponder unit — none of them could reasonably justify the need of the required number of transponders in each unit. This investigation explains by means of three-dimensional geometry the necessity of a four-transponder unit for an optimized system.
