The Civil Aviation Department and British company Inmarsat said in a
joint statement Tuesday said they would do this "in line with our
commitment to greater transparency."

 

Some family members of the 239 people on the plane have demanded raw satellite data to be made public for independent analysis.

The government says calculations
using Inmarsat data showed Malaysia Airlines Flight 370 ended in the
Indian Ocean after it went missing March 8 while flying from Kuala
Lumpur to Beijing.

 

No wreckage has been found, and an underwater hunt continues.

 

Authorities believe the plane was flown deliberately off course, but are still investigating the cause of the disappearance.
