Book Description
This book demonstrates how nonlinear/nonGaussian Bayesian time series estimation methods were used to produce a probability distribution of potential MH370 flight paths.
It provides details of how the probabilistic models of aircraft flight dynamics, satellite communication system measurements, environmental effects and radar data were constructed and calibrated. The probability distribution was used to define the search zone in the southern Indian Ocean.
The book describes particlefilter based numerical calculation of the aircraft flightpath probability distribution and validates the method using data from several of the involved aircraftâ€™s previous flights. Finally it is shown how the Reunion Island flaperon debris find affects the search probability distribution.
