Data released on MH 370

(CNN) - Officials have released the satellite data they used in trying to determine the whereabouts of missing Malaysia Airlines Flight 370. The release should allow for an independent analysis -- but relatives of the 239 people on board MH 370 want to make sure the data is complete.

  Unsure of what to believe, family members of those on board the plane have called for more transparency and more information. Satellite company Inmarsat released data today that was used to determine where the missing plane might be -- but the data might not answer all of the families' questions.

"We do the work requires experts in many different fields. We've gathered those experts within the investigation to allow that to happen, but this is providing some transparency in terms of what actually data came back and forth between the plane and the ground station and how that data has been subsequently used," says Mark Dickinson, Inmarsat VP of Satellite Operations.
  The underwater search will effectively be put on hold this week as the submersible drone wraps up its work in a few days. Australian officials say it could be two months or longer before other underwater vehicles are contracted and deployed in the search.
