Basarnas has prepared a scheme to search for black boxes and victims of the Sriwijaya Air SJ-182 plane that crashed in the Thousand Islands. Divers will be divided into the search to be carried out Monday, January 11 morning.
“From Basarnas, there are 30 divers and assisted by the Navy, Kopaska, Marines, Denjaka, a total of 150 personnel are assisted by volunteers. (So) there are approximately 200 in the field, ”said Basarnas Deputy for Operations, Relief and Preparedness, Bambang Suryo Aji, as quoted from Metro TV broadcast, Sunday, January 10.
The plan is to dive for the black box search operation and the victims of the Sriwijaya Air plane for the Jakarta-Pontianak route which crashed on Saturday, January 9 at noon, starting around 07.00-08.00 WIB.
“We will be briefing the joint SAR team to give an explanation and the division of their working areas,” he said.
This search will be carried out through air monitoring and diving. Basarnas has detected the coordinates of the alleged Sriwijaya Air SJ-182 black box.
“The alleged position of the black box is in the coordinates of about 5 degrees-57 minutes-52 seconds south latitude and 106 degrees-34 minutes-37 seconds Southeast. We will further deepen it, tomorrow we will be even sharper, both deployed by divers and the NTSC team working together with the joint team to explore black box points, “continued Bambang.
The divers who are specifically tasked with finding the Sriwijaya Air SJ-182 black box will carry a pinger locater. The black box position will be analyzed if you need special tools to take it.
“The search is now being carried out using the current equipment being carried out using a multibeam echosounder sonar device to confirm the situation below, and ensure the position of the black box must be visually with the ROV. For blackbox retrieval, just a pinger locator that catches the signal so that with the signal emission we can get close, “said Bambang.
