I’ll begin from Kompas which wrote “Search of the Plane finds its Bright Spot”

The Baruna Jaya I, a research vessel owned by the Agency for Assessment and Application of Technology (BPPT) along with the joint search and rescue teams on Wednesday (31/10) found a signal that was believed to befrom the Lion Air’s black box with the registration number PK-LQP which crashed in TanjungKarawang Sea, West Java, on Monday (29/10). Deputy Chairman for Natural Resource Technology Development of the Agency for Assessment and Application of Technology, HammamRiza, said that the signal from the black box was detected by a transponder device named USBL KR Baruna Jaya I owned by BPPT at 12.25. The location of the plane’s debris and black box is 15 kilometers from the Karawangsea, Karawang Regency. The black box is an important device because it stores the flight data and the communication between the pilot and the air traffic controller officer before the plane crashed. After the black box has been found, the black box’s data will be downloaded, verified, and analyzed. The result can reveal the mystery regarding the cause of the plane’s crash. Head of the National Transportation Safety Commission (KNKT), SoerjantoTjahjono said the analytical process can take 3-5 months depending on the data’s complexity.
