Malaysia Airlines Flight MH370: US Navy deploys deep sea drone to aid search

The US Navy is deploying advanced deep-sea search technology, including anti-submarine aircraft, floating black box locators, and a robot submarine, to look for the missing Malaysia Airlines Flight MH370.

  • Will O’Halloran explains how this 9-inch diameter Autonomous Underwater Vehicle, AUV, operates at Bluefin Robotics, on March 28, in Quincy, Mass.. The US Navy has sent one of the company’s 21-inch AUV’s to Australia to aid in locating the missing Malaysia Airlines plane.

In the heart of the nation’s oldest shipyard in Quincy, Mass., behind a series of locked doors, engineers at Bluefin Robotics design sea-bound drones that traverse the oceans of the globe, mapping the sea floor as part of oceanographic research, oil and gas exploration, and Defense Department reconnaissance.
