Deep-sea robots needed to retrieve black box from lost Malaysian jet

The airplane remains missing.

Despite the 10 planes and nine ships in the Indian Ocean searching for missing MH370, no one has yet seen any wreckage. It was announced last night that the British submarine HMS Tireless is joining the search effort, the Mirror reports. The United States hasn’t publicly announced a similar move, although there are reports that the U.S. Navy could be secretly in the area.

In addition, investigators may need to deploy robot submarines to look for the airplane’s black box. If located, they may learn what caused the plane to malfunction.
