The focused underwater search area is defined as a circle of 10km radius around the second Towed Pinger Locator detection which occurred on 8 April.

According to AMSA, today’s search will cover around 49,491 kilometers, and 10 military aircraft and 11 ships will participate.

Until now no contacts of interest have been found by Bluefin-21.
