Investigators have released new data regarding the Malaysian Airlines Flight 370 that disappeared in March.
On Tuesday, the government released the raw satellite data about the flight. The data comes from Britain's Inmarsat company. The other navigation systems became disabled in the crash. With the raw data gained from Inmarsat, they were able to determine the direction of the plane by measuring “the frequency of the signals sent to the satellite.”
Investigators still have not located the jet. Later this summer, as they continue to search, they will use powerful sonar in order to find the missing plane that lost contact with air traffic controllers. The Boeing 777 left Kuala Lumpur on March 8, according to the The Malaysian Insider.
"It's a whole lot of stuff that is not very important to know," said Michael Exner, a satellite engineer who has been independently researching the calculations, according to the Associated Press. “There are probably two or three pages of important stuff, the rest is just noise. It doesn't add any value to our understanding."
