Title: SYSTEM AND METHOD FOR ACQUIRING SEISMIC DATA WITH FLOTILLA OF SEISMIC SOURCES
Abstract:
A seismic source system (400) that includes a command vessel (402); a flotilla (430) including plural unmanned surface vessels (USVs) (410, 420); and plural source elements (414, 424) configured to be deployed to a given depth in water to generate seismic waves. Each USV (410) is connected through an umbilical (416) to 5 one or more of the plural source elements (414), and wherein the command vessel (402) controls a shooting position and a shooting time of the one or more of the plural source elements (414).
