The paper describes the implementation of a hybrid positioning system based on tilt and compass sensors, integrated into an electronic board, and an acoustic positioning system to be installed aboard KM3NeT. The acoustic system will be capable to fulfil detector relative and absolute positioning, to provide data for cross-fertilisation with Earth and Sea science (bio-acoustics and environmental monitoring) and to allow studies for neutrino acoustic detection. Tilt and Compass boards installed in each optical module provide information about the DOM orientation.
