DFDR and CVR bis: lomopaseo, md100 and others

See post # 685

Max detection range would theoretically be in the order of 4000 meters, but in case of the Adam Air B734 actual TPL detection of the ULB's was only within a 500 meter range.

Mapping the ocean floor first with other (faster) detection means (currently ongoing) may locate bigger pieces of the A332 wreckage, assuming that the A332 didn't fully disintegrate in flight as the Adam Air B734 did. Which in the case of the A332 may considerably narrow down the search area for TPL trawls in order to successfully detect the ULBs of the DFDR and CVR and locate them for ROV salvage.
