happens two hundred thirty nine people were on board the malaysia airlines flight three seventy it's disappearance demands for improved tracking technology and american engineers hope the network of satellites in space could be the answer i did jocasta reports from virginia. how can a passenger plane vanished without a trace in the twenty first century and years of searching for the wreckage of m h three seventy have yielded little clue only a few pieces of debris and frustrations of not knowing exactly where the aircraft crashed into the indian ocean it's amazing that in this world where we track our cars our kids our animals that we don't track aircraft in real time in two thousand and fourteen air traffic controllers had only a general idea of m.h. three seventy's location over open water in fact that's been the norm for flights covering most of the earth the aviation industry has long relied on land based
radars to provide flight surveillance those radars only cover ten percent of the planet you can build a radar tower in the ocean when you're flying over the oceans nobody knows where you are the aviation industry has accommodated by spacing out planes over radar blind areas and sticking as close as possible to radar zones if you've ever taken the popular flight between new york and london you may notice that every route takes you on a northward arc a detour in a sense over canada and greenland that's because flights have had to stay within eyeshot of the land based radar towers there but starting this month new eyes will be watching and watching from space to us companies ariane and radio. have teamed up to operate a satellite flight surveillance system that leaves no area of the planet uncovered
the last of the web of sixty six satellites were delivered to orbit in january the only system that has truly global coverage meaning that there is no spot on the earth poles south pole north pole anywhere that there isn't covered the m h three seventy disappearance led to new international standards for aircraft position reporting over open ocean area on any radium say their technology exceeds those standards feeding location data to air traffic controllers at least every eight seconds hopefully we won't have another situation that arises where we lose an aircraft but if it were to arise with the technology we have now we would know exactly where it is the vast majority of planes already have satellite transmitters on board perhaps ushering in a new industry standard. castro al-jazeera leesburg virginia. a new american space capsule has returned from orbit paving the way for the first

they were not there yet and this dispute bill has dragon spacecraft they're going to do something called in-flight abort test which is basically when they want to rock it with just spacecraft on top no people on board and then basically at the point of maximum energy the spacecraft is going to see if it can escape from the rocket in a situation a launch emergency and then if the spacecraft passes that test now we're ready for group fighting that probably can take place by the end of this year although there's still a lot of work to go and then you know when she gets space x. and that's a boeing of doing this and going to the space station then who offer private services but that's probably at least several years down the line. it is good to have you with us hello adrian figure here in doha the headlines on al-jazeera hundreds of thousands of people in algeria have staged the largest anti-government demonstrations in nearly thirty years there's been a wave of protest against president of the lizzie's beautifully for the past few
