Searching for MY 30TH and modern technology

The southern Indian Ocean is more than 4500 metres deep and the sea mud is several metres thick. It is daunting to scour for the missing MH370 at that depth. The Australian vessel sent it's autonomous underwater vehicle or mini-submarine drone, Bluefin-21, to search for the aircraft. It descended halfway and resurfaced for the second time.

Bluefin-21 drone and it's daunting task

Yesterday, the Australian Joint Agency Coordination Centre (JACC) sent the drone, autonomous underwater vehicle (AUV) or mini-submarine, Bluefin-21, to scour the seabed of southern Indian Ocean for the missing MH370. Scarcely 6 hours later, the drone resurfaced.
     The drone takes two hours to descend to the seabed and two hours to ascend to the surface. Each time it operates for 24 hours. If it reaches the depth of 4500 meter, it automatically resurfaces
     The head of JACC Angus Houston describes the work using Bluefin-21 as a slow and painstaking process. We carry on with the daunting task.

Robotic Bluefin 31 submarine drone and MH370

Australian Joint Agency Coordination Centre (JACC) has used up to 12 international aircrafts and 14 vessels to search for the missing aircraft MH370 in southern Indian Ocean. Vessels such as Haixun and Ocean Shield had detected acoustic pulses or pings believed to be from the black box recorders of the ill-fated aircraft.  Now, it has proceeded to robotic Bluefin 21 submarine drone to scour the 4500 metre deep seabed covered with several metres of sea mud. It is daunting. We need good luck.

Freedom for Sabah kidnapped victims?

The Australian Joint Agency Coordination Centre (JACC) continues to launch massive searches for the missing MH370 in the southern Indian Ocean. Suddenly, a Chinese tourist and a Filipino have been kidnapped from an island resort in Sabah. Both women are in southern Philippines. The kidnappers have contacted the relatives of the tourist, demanding a ransom of over US $36 million.
     There are many factors that affect security including long shorelines, isolated island resorts in Sabah and various rebel factions in the Philippines. There are overlapping claims for islands in the South China Sea.
     The Malaysian Government must try its best to free the hostages.
