BANGKOK: A Thai satellite has detected 300 floating objects in the Indian Ocean, about 200km from the international search area for the missing Malaysia Airlines Flight MH370.
Geo-Informatics and Space Technology Development Agency executive director Anond Snidvongs said that Thaichote or Thailand Earth Observation Satellite had recorded the objects, ranging from 2m to 15m in the area.
He said that images of the findings had already been submitted to the caretaker Thai premier and that caretaker Thai Foreign Minister Surapong Tohvichakchaikul would forward the images to his Malaysian counterpart.
Thaichote or Thailand Earth Observation Satellite is a remote sensing satellite for natural resources observation.
Malaysia concluded that the flight “ended” in the Indian Ocean with all passengers presumed dead.
Prior to the finding by the Thai, a French satellite captured images of 122 objects in the ocean but the search teams from several countries have not yet found them. — The Nation/Asia News Network
