Revolutionary New MH370 Tracking Technology Passes Rigorous Valiadtion Test
Aerospace engineer Richard Godfrey used a Royal New Zealand Air Force MH370 research aircraft on March 28, 2014 to help validate his new technology called GDTAAA (Global detection and tracking of aircraft anytime, anywhere).
This new system is based on the pronounced “ whisper ” weak signal propagation reports (WSPR) and promises to give a new search of the MH370 a more precise location of the Boeing 777 and also as a return to the extraordinary followed by satellite modeling and drift of the hapless jet with 239 souls on board.
The research aircraft was a Lockheed P3 Orion and this is significant because it was one of the few to spot the wreckage in the area that is now considered the Boeing 777’s final resting place.
Mr Godfrey says this validation report is one of many because it builds a compelling body of work before the final analysis of the MH370 impact zone.
Preliminary work suggests this will align with previous satellite and drift modeling work.
Mr. Godfrey says his work on the MH 370 flight path is a working hypothesis. âThe flight path of the MH370 that I have proposed is a hypothesis supported by a body of evidence in the form of a large number of position and progression indicators.â
âThe working hypothesis will remain valid until someone proves it to be false by presenting evidence that this flight path was not followed. One possibility would be the publication of raw radar data for example. “
Mr Godfreys’ latest article is based on the work of Dr Robert Westphal, who holds a doctorate in engineering from one of the largest technical universities in Germany. Dr Westphal has worked on radar systems, is a patent holder and a leading member of the WSPR amateur radio community (KB9AMG rating).
In 2021, he presented at the HamSCI 2021 international scientific workshop for radio amateurs on âGeocaching in the Ionosphereâ.
Dr Westphal wrote: “In mid-July 2020, I started working on passive HF WSPR detection because the MH370 was still missing and current technology didn’t help much to find it.”
âIn November 2020, I detected and tracked Qantas flight QF114 from JNB to PER with beautiful WSPR signals. I posted my experience and was beaten as usual.
âPeople praise invention and innovation as long as it doesn’t fall into their own comfort zone and hurt their business. But disruptive technologies will.
âRichard Godfrey was the only one who listened and tried. I fully support him when it comes to WSPR detection and especially tracking. As far as the follow-up goes, he’s more optimistic than I am, but you have to be optimistic on unfamiliar territory.

Ari Joki, of the Finnish Defense Forces Logistics Command, Air Force Systems Division, who in an unclassified document from NATO and Lappeenranta University of Technology detected a plane crossing a line transmission from Saudi Arabia. in Finland.
In plain language, Mr. Joki and Piotr Ptak proposed in 2016 a global air traffic surveillance system based on the existing global network of amateur radio and DX (long distance) listener resources.
The physics of radio are essentially the same as listening to an express train sound its horn when passing a station with the toggle frequency change due to the Doppler effect. (You can tell the speed of the train and when it is coming towards you and when it is moving away from you.)
