The paper explains how the company, in conjunction with the international investigation team, researched and analysed the satellite signals which contributed to a shifting of the search area from its original location to the area which is now the focus on attention.
Authors Chris Ashton, Alan Schuster-Bruce, Gary Colledge and Mark Dickinson lay out the way in which the analysis narrowed down the search area over a number of iterations, as the details of MH370’s final flight became clearer.
Continued analysis of the publicly-available information pertaining to the flight of MH370 has enabled us to improve our estimate of where the aircraft crashed into the southern Indian Ocean. Our ‘most probable’ end point is located at 37.71S 88.75E, slightly to the southwest of our previous solution, but further to the south than any of the currently announced potential search areas.
Here I present the basic outline of a scenario to explain the disappearance of MH370. Although there are few hard facts, I have attempted to construct a scenario which reconciles the following observations:
•The satellite data, and in particular the Burst Timing Offset (BTO) and the Burst Frequency Offset (BFO) data sets, from which my analysis suggests that MH370 traveled south on auto pilot and crashed around 34S, 94E.
Shortly after the disappearance of MH370 on March 8th, an informal group of people with diverse technical skills and backgrounds came together on-line to discuss the event and analyse the technical information that had been released. The group has since become known as the “Independent Group”, or “IG”. The IG has continued to share an extensive array of reference material and their experience with aircraft, satellite, radar, and meteorological systems. Several high fidelity flight path models have been independently developed, refined and compared.
We have refined our analysis models over a period of time and have found no meaningful error in the assumptions or computational approaches that we have taken. We remain concerned that some information of importance may have been withheld for reasons that have not been made public. This has limited the scope of our analysis to exploration of a number of flight dynamics models and technical scenarios that appear to be simple and plausible.
Interesting article in light of the fact that Georesonance claimed they found the missing plane in the Gulf of Thailand, something that later proved to be not true. However, what is of interest in this article is that this company seems to have very strong ties to the Ukraine and Ukraine Military technology.
Shortly after the disappearance of MH370 on March 8th, an informal group of people with diverse technical backgrounds came together on-line to discuss the event and analyze the specific technical information that had been released, with the individuals sharing reference material and their experience with aircraft and satellite systems. While there remain a number of uncertainties and some disagreements as to the interpretation of aspects of the data, our best estimates of a location of the aircraft at 00:11UT (the last ping ring) cluster in the Indian Ocean near 36.02S, 88.57E.
Tracking a cellphone is easy, especially for the National Security Agency. But can you track a cellphone that's been turned off?
It sounds impossible, but the NSA apparently has been able to track powered-down mobile phones since 2004 ....
