CAPTIO Trajectory

CAPTIO-MH370-Plausible-Trajectory–version3.4 (22Jan.2018).

The  approach taken in this document consists of taking account of an Air Traffic Management (ATM) point of view,
 demonstrating that a human-piloted  trajectory was possible (and indeed likely) and checking that such a trajectory  would be allowed by B777 performance and its modes of operation. This document presents an analysis based on results already published by the  scientific community but considering that the `ight was humanly controlled  and piloted until the end. (Video illustration).

Thousand of Inmarsat compatible straight line trajectories crossing ARC2 from latitude 5.8°N down to 3.35°S   (18 Apr. 2021)

A straight line trajectory, i.e. constant speed and constant track direction (great circle), minimizes the number of trajectory variables to be considered.
Based upon the geometry of the system (the aircraft and the satellites i.e. the actual one and the virtual one), we analysed the BFOR behaviour as function of speed, track direction, position and time. We also came up with an analytic formula for the Inmarsat compatible straight line trajectories crossing Arc2.
All these numerous trajectories starting at latitude 5.8°N down to 3.35°S at Arc2 are equally probable and the resulting likely latitude at Arc7 is circa [~31°S;~39°S] which have been unsuccessfully searched.
