How satellite buoys may be the key to discovering debris from missing Flight 370

It's now been two full weeks since Flight 370 disappeared and questions and theories far outweigh clues and concrete information.

But could the key to solving this mystery be found among satellite-tracked buoys?

Joining "Piers Morgan Live" on Friday evening, Oceanography researcher Luca Centurioni demonstrated how such instruments may aid in the search for debris in the Indian Ocean.

"We have an element which is underwater. We call it a drug. And that will make sure the drifter follows the ocean currents," explained Centurioni, detailing the first element in a three tier process. "Then we have another sensor which is a temperature sensor. It measures the temperature of the water. And then very importantly we have another sensor which is atmospheric pressure sensor ... and what we do, we feed all the data in real time to anyone who can make use of it."

With a pair of images being spotted via satellite early Thursday morning, a collection of international ships and aircrafts converged in the ocean. Adding buoys to the search offers a simple and intimate element to the investigation.

"It's very easy. They can be either deployed from an airplane or just one person can deploy it from the ship. Basically you just throw it overboard and the drifter starts the mission automatically. Here it goes."

And with that, Centurioni and his handlers heaved the objects over the side of their ship and into the waters of San Diego, in the process demonstrating a piece of technology which many hope will help provide some answers regarding the mystery surrounding missing Flight 370.

Watch the above video to see Centurioni demonstrate his expertise, and stay with CNN on television, and visit for the latest developments on missing Flight 370.

    Malaysian plane: 20 passengers worked for ELECTRONIC WARFARE and MILITARY RADAR firm

    A US technology company which had 20 senior staff on board Malaysia Airlines Flight MH370 had just launched a new electronic warfare gadget for military radar systems in the days before the Boeing 777 went missing.

    Why haven't I heard anyone say "to check the Islands or on land" rather than the ocean? I have a gut feeling the plane could have landed safely on land near the ocean in a very densed area. Since it was flying at 12,000 feet, wouldn't that prove he was trying to land the plan? The plane have lost power and no communications. I just feel in my heart these 239 people are alive. Why is the focus on the "water" is basically my concern. No one has spoken about those possibilities. Could that question be asked to all of those in charge with this search? Thanks

    MH 370. Assuming factual true repeated official reports one can draw the following scenario:
    1. A cordial good night was given (was this actually what it appeared or was it a coded attempt to convey trouble or, even more, was it directed from whoever was planning the trouble with the intention to have air controllers relaxed?);
    2. TRANSPONDER and ACARS were off;
    3. Evasive maneuvers were taken;
    4. The flight diverged drastically from its expected course;
    5. No Mayday was sent;
    6. If course change would have been motivated by a mechanical or whatever problem it would be difficult to believe an experienced captain would seek a place to land in opposite direction in the ocean at night;
    7. Too many unorthodox actions to swallow;
    8. Al this put together points to intentional action.

    We Can Proactively Prevent Crashes Like MH370 & Enhance Air Safety and Economy of Flight

    At the end of World War 2 a number of Air Force veterans got jobs at the FAA. The Air Force had been using military radar for tracking aircraft. They came in and pushed the FAA to enhance their system which was visual at that time. They added Radar like the military. So that the present Air Traffic Control (ATC) and management system came out of the military technology. The airlines, aircraft manufacturer, pilots don’t pay for the ATC system or GPS. The ATC system uses radar to record aircraft position and radio to record conversations with the pilots and controllers (the recordings are not considered private). The tradition ATC infrastructure, has already been accomplished with technology that came out of the military. The airlines don't pay for the tracking radars or the cost of GPS. It is a hole in the present aviation system that the airlines, aircraft manufacturer and pilots, out of fear of liability, have put a “private” around the Digital Flight Data Recorder (DFDR) information
    being recorded in the aircraft have prevented that critical safety data from being used in real-time.
    In this modern day of lots of International Travel and global economy the digital flight data recorder data should be telemetered to the ground in real-time and used to track the aircraft and prevent crashes. It can be done every second. The memory requirement for all aircraft flying on a single day presently fit on the memory of a single lap-top computer. Converting to real-time digital flight data recording can save billions of dollars and make flying safer and nations more secure (preventing 9/11 alone would have more than paid for the system). We owe it to all that have died in fatal crashes that could have been prevented to fix the system and break down the political barrier walls that have allowed for a host of fatal crashes that were preventable (eg : decompression, rogue piloting, etc.).
    You don’t see or hear anyone in the media discussing this even though this is the right way to do total air system recording. I firmly believe that if those former AF ATC people in 1946 would have had the information and global high bandwidth communication technology (computers and satellites) that we have today it would have been already been done. The bandwidth of military satellite communication systems are over ten times that the ACARS commercial system. The GPS system of satellites was put up by the military and resisted by the FAA which was pushing Omega (100 times less accurate than GPS). Luckily for all involved that Air Force was able to get the GPS system funded and operational as a precision bombing system without FAA help. Those AF ATC 1946 veterans using radar dramatically stopped air crashes and we can update the system to a 21st century Air Traffic Control System (21CATCS). Both China and the US have the technology and capability to put an end to this political problem and fix the system. Always remember that the remote flight recorder, data streaming black box, can be used in the present autopsy mode but proactively it can also be used to actively prevent fatal crashes (see: web the site safelander). We owe fixing the system to all those who have died in needless crashes that could have been prevented by proactively using the digital flight recorder information in real-time.
    It should be noted that the US objected to flight data recorders and that technology came out of Australia and Australia was the first nation to require flight recorders on carrier aircraft. The aircraft tracking radar came out of England. It was used to track the German war planes.

    Today, I went to the beach front with my children. I found a sea shell and gave it to my 4 year old daughter and said "You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear." She placed the shell to her ear and screamed. There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched her ear. She never wants to go back! LoL I know this is totally off topic but I had to tell someone!
