PETALING JAYA - All relevant parties are working to release the data communication logs and the technical descriptions pertaining to missing Malaysia Airlines (MAS) flight MH370.

Department of Civil Aviation (DCA) director-general Datuk Azharuddin Abdul Rahman said Inmarsat has been giving its full support in the ongoing investigation into the disappearance of the aircraft.

"The DCA has been discussing with Inmarsat with the assistance of the Air Accidents Investigation Branch (AAIB), to get a common descriptor for the Inmarsat satellite data.

"Such data was provided to MAS when MH370 first went missing," he said in a statement on Tuesday.

He added it was imperative for authorities to provide helpful information to the next of kin and general public - which will include the data communication logs as well as relevant explanations.

"It is to enable the reader to understand the data provided.

"It must be noted that previously where reference has been made to 'data communication logs' and 'raw data' - they refer to the same set of data," he said.
