The plane was flying from Kuala Lumpur to Beijing when it disappeared over the Indian Ocean in March 2014.
The search for the missing Malaysia Airlines flight MH370 has resumed, a year after the largest search in aviation history was suspended. "The ability to operate untethered independent missions allows the AUVs to go deeper and collect higher quality data, making this technology ideal for the search", said Plunkett.
The MH370 debris could furnish clues to events on board before the aircraft crashed.
Ocean Infinity has leased the Norwegian research ship Seabed Construction, which is equipped with several autonomous underwater vessels (UAVs), essentially robot-controlled underwater drones which will scour a new region of the ocean bottom.
If the company finds the Boeing 777, the amount they are paid will depend on where it was located, said Liow.
The first search attempt, which was conducted by three countries, Australia, Malaysia, and China, was called off in January last year, after three years without bearing fruit.

According to a "no-find, no-fee" contract awarded to the seabed exploration firm, Ocean Infinity, the latter will receive up to 70 million dollars if successful. The amount rises gradually to a maximum of $70 million if the jet is found outside the 25,000 square kilometre search zone.
Formed in 2015, Plunkett said the company has 25 team members on board, with four experienced in the search of the Air France 447 crash in the Atlantic Ocean in June 2009.
He also thanked the Malaysian Government for not giving up hope of finding the missing jetliner and continuously offering support as well as information regarding MH370. Ocean Infinity's ship is equipped with eight unmanned submarines that scan the ocean floor at depths of almost 20,000 feet.
Plunkett said once they reach the search zone, work will commence immediately, and the search is expected to last for 90 days.
