Image provided by Ocean Infinity. Contracted by Ocean Infinity as Quality Manager in the search for flight MH370. Provided independent assessment and review of all data collected using fleet of eight 6000m AUVs. Assisted with overall daily operational planning and search analysis.

The MH370 search is the largest underwater search even undertaken, covering more than 240,000km2 over the past fours years. It is with great sadness that after years of hard work by hundreds of people we where not able to locate the aircraft. We hope to one day succeed and help to provide at least some answers to the families and loved ones of the 239 people who disappeared on March 8, 2014. Our thoughts remain with you, perseverance will bring the truth.
