We herein propose a low-approximated least-squares method for underwater drone localization that does not require depth information. On the basis of error analysis, we propose a rule to deploy a set of surface drones that minimizes the impact of measurement errors such as GPS or distance measurement errors. The Evaluation results indicate that the proposed method outperforms the least-squares method when depth information is not provided.
