    Hi 1090 and North Borneo

    The box is a cheap plastic tool box ($20 at K-Mart) which I have put a 12V automobile battery in the bottom section and electronics in the top section.

    I use the box as...

    Math, assuming it is correct, never complicates anything! It reveals the truth.

    Funny. I thought we where talking about a plane crash. Now you are talking about free falling bodies. How did they exit the plane?

    Canadair CL604 Challenger VH-OCV returning. And Bombardier Global 6000 VH-TGG returning.

    Looks like they're all returning early today. Weather is reported to be taking a turn for the worse this...

    Airbus A319-115(LR) VH-VHD returning.

    Again, rather than focusing on flight safety, you are focusing on the convenience of the recovery operation.

    Please post the studies to which you are referring to.
  8. From the upgrade point of view you have not...

    From the upgrade point of view you have not specified which system you are referring to. Are you talking about scars? Or is there some other system? If the latter explain how it would have made a...

    The question that remains is what would such a system have done to change anything in this instance? That is how would such a system improved the resilience against a single point failure?

    You...

    The matter of families knowing were a crashed aircraft is a political problem. And, I suspect, Malaysian Airlines will respond to this political problem by transmitting more position reports in the...

    Its a matter of probabilities. The fact is that, in this case, the probability that anybody could survive long enough to be rescued under the most optimistic scenario is very low. This is balanced...

    As an engineer I have nothing against implementing new technology. But I balk at making the plane unsafer in order to make the SAR more convenient. That is just an example or warped priorities.

    There is some merit to streaming CVR / FDR data for the purposes of aviation industry safety. And the equipment to do so already exists. But had it worked during this flight the outcome would be the...

    Art this flight we will have to discover what occurred before suggesting the remedy.

    What facts?

    I'm still trying to understand which problem automatic position reporting is meant to solve. For instance, how many people on this particular flight that are now dead would be alive id this equipment...

    I suggest that you design and engineer such a system and present it to the certifying authorities for approval.

    Or it could last less than 30 days.

    There is some evidence that the pinger on Air France 447 do not work at all. After the searchers recognized that possibility they feed that into their model...
  18. I remind you that there is no evidence that...

    I remind you that there is no evidence that anything was turned off on this flight. And, if equipment was turned off, there is no evidence that there was any malicious intent. So what issue is your...

    So, from that, can we assume that you will have an engineered and approved device available soon?
  20. You will forgive me when I say that the thought...

    You will forgive me when I say that the thought of your desktop computer doing anything critical in an airliner cockpit horrifies me. :)

    I don't think you understand the fire potential that any...

    If this is a unique case then, presumably, it cannot used as an argument for the general case. So I see no necessity for any new equipment. In any case the only convincing argument for additional...
  22. But the problem is how would this new equipment...

    But the problem is how would this new equipment have helped in this case? If the equipment supplying ACARS data to the Sat. Terminal failed and the transponder failed what is it about this equipment...

    Interestingly, the pinger on AF 447 almost certainly did not work - either the electronics failed or it was acoustically shielded. Once the searchers assigned a low probability of the pinger...

    The US has already pre-positioned a deep towed hydrophone array for this purpose. These are towed at depth - typically 1,000 to 2,000 meters deep, by a surface ship - moving very slowly.

    The answer is no. The reason is that as cute as the penguins of Grande Terre and Heard Islands are nobody has identified them as a national security threat - yet.
