Information on the use of WSPR to search for Flight MH370 has been trickling out since Spring. Finding the whole thing interesting, I’ve assembled a set of links to explore the methodology.
The analysis explained:
In a Nov. 30 report (pdf), the engineer said he had analyzed the plane’s flight path and final movements using Global Detection and Tracking of Any Aircraft Anywhere (GDTAAA) software based on the Weak Signal Propagation Reporter (WSPR) data publicly available on WSPRnet.
“The WSPRnet data provides hundreds of radio signals every two minutes during the flight of MH370,” Godfrey wrote in the report. “These radio signals propagate around the globe between transmitters and receivers with help of refraction in the ionosphere. The path of an aircraft can disturb the propagation path of the radio waves.
“A single WSPRnet signal disturbance is a candidate progress indicator, multiple WSPRnet signal disturbances are a candidate position indicator, where two or more propagation paths cross at a particular location.”
