"They will be looking for flight data recorder most importantly. And to help them do this we have a transporter that produces acoustic signal which will be picked up by the search parties, who will be in marine in the boat and other equipment on the surface of the water that will be listening for the sound in order to locate flight data recorder," Fendt said.
On Thursday, the EgyptAir Airbus A320, carrying a total of 66 people, disappeared from radar screens over the Mediterranean Sea, 10 miles into Egyptian airspace, while en route from Paris to Cairo.
"They [the search team] will be looking for flight data recorder most importantly… The signal [from the flight data recorder] can last for about a month. So that’s the time they got to find the signal," the Airbus spokesman stated.
Earlier on Friday, EgyptAir confirmed in statement that searchers found 295 kilometers (183 miles) from the coast of Alexandria the wreckage identified as being from the company’s passenger jet.
