Rocket lab will be launching a series of satellites into the orbit that according to the Aerospace manufacturer has an ability to track the MH370 if the disappearance would have happened today. The aviation tracking ADS-B satellites will be able to track the aircraft when they make a transit through areas. This kind of tracking has been impossible in the traditional radars so far which can track the radius of about 277 kilometers or 150 nautical miles, which is one of the reasons as to why there were no proper traces of MH370 which was believed to have crashed somewhere around the Indian Ocean. 

The MH370 was in the middle of a flight from Kuala Lumpur to Beijing with 239 passengers on board when it lost contact around 12:14 a.m. on 8 March 2014. The control was lost with the plane when it was more than 370 kilometers or 200 nautical miles out. There
