Haumonte et al. (2016a) recently introduced a new marine seismic acquisition method named midwater stationary cable (MSC). This technique uses autonomous surface vessels to control independent seismic four-component cables. It is demonstrated in this paper that the high number of degrees of freedom enables to record full-azimuth, full-offset, full-band and high fold data which will in turn deliver a better structural imaging and reservoir characterization. As an application example, the salt/subsalt imaging challenge was selected for which the different geophysical issues i.e. azimuthal distribution, offset range, frequency content, signal penetration and fold are addressed.
