Short summary
Based on existing ocean bottom E-field (OBE) receiver specifications, including low noise levels, low power consumption, and low time drift errors, we integrated two induction coils for the magnetic sensor and a three-axis omnidirectional geophone for the seismic sensor to assemble an ultra-short baseline (USBL) transponder as the position sensor, which improved position accuracy and operational efficiency while reducing field data acquisition costs.
