GeoResonance adamant MH370 is in Bay of Bengal

Geological survey firm GeoResonance Pty Lt, based in Adelaide, said it hadn’t suffered any backlash from issuing its public claim to have found the wreckage of MH370 in the Bay of Bengal.

“We cannot judge about awareness that our business has created. What we know for sure is that our claim has unearthed numerous pseudo scientists in the form of media commentators,” said managing director Pavel Kursa.

He said GeoResonance had consulted its clients before approaching the media with the MH370 wreckage claim and its clients had encouraged the firm to alert the authorities.

GeoResonance’s clients mainly comprise mining companies searching for minerals, oil and gas hidden deep under ocean floors.

Asked if there had been any new interest in the firm’s services since the claim, Kursa told The Rakyat Post: “We have only received invitations to scientific conferences.”

As to possible questions raised about the impact of the claim on its business reputation, Kursa said: “We are busy doing survey projects.”

Touching further on the MH370 wreckage claim, he said: “There are people who tried to discredit our technology without having proper knowledge of what the company does.”

Having read that thus far only Bangladesh navy ships had gone to investigate the GeoResonance claims, he said: “As far as Bangladeshi Navy checking our findings, we firmly believe that our findings have not been checked at all.

“The media mentioned ‘three Bangladeshi ships scouring the Bay of Bengal’. However, what does ‘scouring’ mean?

“We reported the precise location. Given the margin of error, the reported area size was only 500 sq metres! What was required is to send just one ship to the specified coordinates and check the location with a sonar.

“GeoResonance remains quietly confident on our reported finding in the Bay of Bengal.

“We are considering verifying the location ourselves. Two words to all the sceptics: ‘Test us!’

    UK satellite operator Inmarsat is to offer a free, basic tracking service to all the world’s passenger airliners.

    The offer follows the case of Malaysia Airlines flight MH370, which disappeared without trace on 8 March.

    Inmarsat says the free service it is offering would carry definitive positional information.

    It would see a plane determine its location using GPS and then transmit that data – together with a heading, speed and altitude – over Inmarsat’s global network of satellites every 15 minutes.

      cleaning, moving very quickly. you cannot move quickly to find a plane that has ended in some part of the planet that is so hard to find.

    Some mathematical experts have expressed concern about satellite data analysis from Inmarsat on missing MH370. They think the search could be in the wrong ocean. Re-analysis of pinger data is under way.

      Because a satellite cannot be stationary or static. So when a plane moves, the satellite moves too but they don’t move on the same direction. If technology is that great, it cannot be wrong. How come different technologies produce different findings ? They are supposed to confirm and agree on each other’s findings.

    Inmarsat satellites, by its very nature, are geostationary.

    Who has the data which led to a massive search in the southern ocean? Why this data has not yet been released to the public?

    ///”The raw data is with (satellite company) Inmarsat, not with Malaysia, not with Australia, not with Malaysia Airlines, so if there is any request for this raw data to be made available to the public, it must be made to Inmarsat,” Acting Minister of Transportation Hishammuddin Hussein said.///
    ///. . Inmarsat, which owns the satellites, insists that the data has already been released to investigators///
    ///. . Australian officials heading the search in the Southern Indian Ocean tell CNN they don’t have the raw data, either. ..///

    ///”I don’t know who to believe,” CNN aviation analyst Miles O’Brien said. “But isn’t it awful that it’s quite evident somebody is lying here? Somebody is lying. We’re talking about something that involves a missing airliner, now 70 days. Lives lost, families shattered. And there (are) people lying about this. This is absolutely reprehensible. .”///

    Did the missing plane crash into the South China Sea?

    /// Flight MH370 The Mystery . .doesn’t claim to have any answers, but to some extent supports the theory that the aircraft may have been accidentally shot down during a joint Thai-US military exercise in the South China Sea. Searchers were then possibly led in the wrong direction to cover up the mistake, it suggests. . .The Sun-Herald is the first media outlet in Australia to see the work, written by author and journalist Nigel Cawthorne. It records the events, emotions and theories unfolding on a backdrop of fruitless searches.///

    ///. .around the time the plane’s transponder went off at 01.21, New Zealander Mike McKay, working on an oil rig in the Gulf of Thailand, saw a burning plane. He links that to the joint Thai-US military exercise going on in the South China Sea with personnel from China, Japan, Indonesia and other countries.///

    ///He suggests through anonymous and contradictory sources, they might release misinformation, leading people to search in the wrong place in an environment so hostile that it would be unlikely anything would ever be found. ”After all, no wreckage has been found in the south Indian Ocean, which in itself is suspicious,” Cawthorne writes. ”Now I’m not saying that’s what happened but if a black box is found, who is to say that it is from Flight MH370? Another black box could have been dropped in the sea 1000 miles from Perth while the search was going on in the South China Sea. In these circumstances, with the amount of disinformation abroad, it is best to be sceptical.”///
