There are many  seismographic stations in the world, that receive  seismic waves generated by earthquakes. We proposed the establishment of a new type of seismic station, which continuously transmits seismic waves with artificial source. By use of seismic wave generated by the transmitted stations we can obtain the image of deep Earth. The key problem of the transmitted station is to find the suitable artificial seismic source: powerful, green and clear sources. With  the development of air-gun technique and information theory, it is possible now to obtain the image of a 100 000 km2 in spatial coverage and 40 km in depth (deep to Moho) by use of the transmitted seismic stations.
