MH370 Operational Search Update—
26 October 2016

 
Key developments this week

Fugro Equator berthed at AMC Henderson on Friday 21 October, and commenced re-mobilisation of the Hugin 4500 Autonomous Underwater Vehicle (AUV) search system for its deployment in the search. The vessel departed the Australian Marine Complex at Henderson on 24 October, proceeding to the calibration range to test the performance of the AUV.

Dong Hai Jiu 101 departed Fremantle on Thursday 20 October and, after conducting trials of the Remotely Operated Vehicle (ROV), proceeded to the search area. The vessel arrived in the search area on Monday 24 October and commenced search operations.
 
Weather

Weather conditions are predicted to be marginal changing to poor later in the week. These conditions may impact the progress of the search operations as the ROV requires frequent launching and recovery—operations which call for suitable conditions.

New MH370 report says plane crashed into ocean at high speed
4:31 p.m. EDT November 2, 2016

The Malaysia Airlines Flight 370 that disappeared nearly three years ago with 239 people on board crashed into the Indian Ocean at high speed rather than gliding down gently, an analysis of the debris found.

The conclusion from the Australian Transport Safety Bureau made public Wednesday is based on analysis of 20 pieces of debris believed to have come from the Boeing 777. Pieces of debris have washed ashore on the east and south coast of Africa, the east coast of Madagascar and the islands of Mauritius, Reunion and Rodriguez since the plane disappeared March 8, 2014, during a flight from Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, to Beijing.

Two sections of flaps were traced specifically to the lost plane by their markings.

Damage to pieces of the wings suggest the flaps “most likely” weren’t deployed as they would be in a controlled glide for landing, according to the bureau’s 27-page report.

MH370 Operational Search Update—
02 November 2016

 
Key developments this week

Fugro Equator completed trials of the re-mobilised Hugin 4500 Autonomous Underwater Vehicle (AUV) search system and departed the calibration range for the search area on Friday, 28 October 2016. The vessel arrived in the search area today.

Dong Hai Jiu 101 continues to conduct underwater search operations using the Remotely Operated Vehicle (ROV).

Today, the Australian Transport Safety Bureau (ATSB) released its MH370—Search and debris examination report (more details are available below).
 
ATSB Report: MH370—Search and debris examination update

Today the ATSB released the latest update report on the search for Malaysia Airlines Flight MH370: MH370—Search and debris examination update. This report provides an update of the MH370 search area definition described in previous ATSB reports. It comprises further analysis of satellite data, additional end of flight simulations, a summary of the analysis of the right outboard wing flap, and preliminary results from the enhanced debris drift modelling. The report is available on the ATSB website: www.atsb.gov.au/publications/investigation_reports/2014/aair/ae-2014-054/

First Principles Review Meeting

The ATSB has convened a First Principles Review in Canberra from 2–4 November 2016. The Review brings together members of the Australian and international Search Strategy Working Group and other experts and advisors. They will review the results of the search undertaken to date and all of the available data, associated analysis, assumptions and modelling which have informed the definition of the search area. The Review may also assist operations in the remainder of the search effort. A report detailing the outcomes of the Review will be published by the ATSB in the coming months.

Report on Malaysia Airlines Flight 370 Narrows Search Area, if Not Mystery
By MICHELLE INNIS  NOV. 2, 2016

SYDNEY, Australia — Extensive tracking of debris from Malaysia Airlines Flight 370, which disappeared more than two years ago in the southern Indian Ocean with 239 people onboard, has further narrowed the search area in a remote swath of ocean off the coast of Western Australia.

The tracking was detailed in a report from the Australian Transport Safety Bureau that was released in Canberra on Wednesday.

The report said it was likely that debris drifted from an area around the midpoint of the current search site, due west of Australia’s southwestern corner. Modeling and ocean tests showed it was unlikely the debris began to drift from farther north or south.

16 November 2016

 
Key developments this week

Fugro Equator is continuing underwater search operations in the north of the search area using the Autonomous Underwater Vehicle (AUV). During the past week, Fugro Equator has undertaken 5 missions, each one taking, on average, 21 hours.

Dong Hai Jiu 101 is continuing underwater search operations using the Remotely Operated Vehicle (ROV) in the middle of the search area but operations have been affected by unsuitable weather conditions. Two contact reacquisitions have been undertaken during the past week with both being identified as geological features (pictures below):

MH370 Operational Search Update—
23 November 2016

 
Key developments this week

Fugro Equator is continuing underwater search operations in the north of the 120,000 square-kilometre search area using the Autonomous Underwater Vehicle (AUV). As of today, Fugro Equator has undertaken a total of 16 missions this swing. Three AUV missions were successfully completed this week, with an average duration of 27 hours.

Dong Hai Jiu 101 is continuing underwater search operations using the Remotely Operated Vehicle (ROV) in the south of the search area but operations have been affected by unsuitable weather conditions. Dong Hai Jiu 101 has conducted a total of 13  ROV dives during the swing. Two dives were completed by Dong Hai Jiu 101 in the past week with one sonar contact identified as geology. Dive 13 identified a sonar contact as a debris field from a nearby shipwreck (Shipwreck #2). Dive 14 is currently underway.

Underwater Search Operations

The underwater search continues with an AUV searching areas of challenging terrain and an ROV examining a range of sonar contacts which have been previously identified. The first figure below shows the original sonar data featuring a contact (designated HH0009a) detected earlier in the search. The second image is a frame grab of video taken by the ROV on the seafloor. The contact was confirmed as being manmade and is almost certainly debris from a nearby shipwreck.

These images show the complexity of imagery of the search and the difference in sonar and visual interpretations of contacts.

Fugro Equator is continuing underwater search operations in the north of the 120,000 square-kilometre search area using the Autonomous Underwater Vehicle (AUV). As of today, Fugro Equator has undertaken a total of 21 missions this swing. 5 AUV missions were successfully completed this week, with an average duration of 25 ½ hours.

Dong Hai Jiu 101 is continuing underwater search operations using the Remotely Operated Vehicle (ROV) in the south of the search area with some operations affected by unsuitable weather conditions. Dong Hai Jiu 101 has conducted a total of 24 ROV dives during the swing.

Underwater search imagery

The underwater search continues with an AUV searching areas of challenging terrain and an ROV examining a range of sonar contacts which have been previously identified. Over the past week, ROV missions have revealed those contacts to be geological or man-made objects.

Dive 17 identified a contact cluster as geological comprising basaltic rock outcrops on a slope. Some outcrops were 5m in length and 0.75 m high.

Dive 19 video footage identified a single contact as a discarded standard 200 litre oil barrel.
