Inmarsat says it handed over all raw data to Malaysia

Inmarsat, the satellite company whose data and analysis led to the current search zone for Malaysia Airlines Flight 370, tells CNN that it has provided all of their raw data to Malaysian officials.

In a statement obtained by Erin Burnett OutFront, the company says, "Inmarsat's raw data was provided to the investigation team at an early stage in the search for MH370."

Flight 370 search officials turn to private companies for help

Inmarsat's statement contradicts what the Malaysian government said Thursday - that it doesn't have the raw data.

Families and scientists have been increasingly angry at Inmarsat for supposedly refusing to release it to anyone.

"We have very high confidence in the analysis of this data, which was independently evaluated by the international teams accredited to the official investigation," Inmarsat's VP of External Relations Chris McLaughlin said in the statement.

The firm is standing by the analysis that has led searchers to the southern Indian ocean.

But, a group of scientists say the Inmarsat analysis could be wrong, searchers may be looking in the wrong ocean.

It's been 70 days since the plane disappeared and there hasn't been a single piece of debris found in the search zone, or any evidence of the plane beneath the water.

CNN's Jim Clancy has more OutFront.
