According to a Malaysian official, raw satellite data regarding missing Malaysia Airlines Flight 370 is set to be released to the public on Tuesday. CNN is reporting that Malaysian acting Transport Minister Hishammuddin Hussein issued the comments around the data while touring a new terminal at Kuala Lumpur International Airport.

The data will be released by satellite company Inmarsat. The plane went missing back in March over Southeast Asia. There were 239 people aboard the plane and family members of those lost have been asking to see the raw data.


Inmarsat communicated with the plane during its final hours and said initially that it did not have the authority to release the data to the public.

“In line with our commitment towards greater transparency, all parties are working for the release of the data communication logs and the technical description of the analysis for public consumption,” Inmarsat and Malaysian aviation officials said in a statement.

The plane disappeared on March 8 when it flew sharply off of its course from Kuala Lumpur to Beijing and disappeared from radar screens. By publishing the data, independent analysis can be done, which could lead to some form of an answer on the plane’s disappearance. Officials from both Malaysia and Australia have said that international experts believe the plane crashed in the southern Indian Ocean. With almost three months of searching both above and below the ocean’s surface, nothing physical has been found.
