The Search for MH370

Serving the MH370 Global Community

Rob presents his working paper on remote sensing of aircraft in the Southern Hemisphere by using WSPR at open sea without surveillance radar and ADS-B location, demonstrated using four different cases.

Rob asks 4 key questions in his paper and provides the answers:

  1. Is it possible to detect an aircraft over thousands of km with WSPR?
  2. Is it possible to detect forward scattering over thousands of km?
  3. Is it possible to detect scattering along the long path (LP)?
  4. Is it possible to detect and track-while-detect just using secondary WSPR data?

He concludes we can use WSPRnet secondary data for the search of aircraft such as MH370 over great distances.
