Dutch Safety Board (DSB) writes in the final report on MH17 that the Russian Federation did not comply to ICAO Annex 11 because it did not record radar data in raw format. It should have reported that to ICAO.
ICAO Annex 11 however does not explicitly defines in what format radar should be recorded. It just states that radar data should be automatically recorded and retained for at least 30 days.
DSB is a typical case of a pot calling the kettle back. DSB failed in many ways as described here.
While on the subject of not being in compliance. Let us have a look at the DSB report.
First of all, DSB did not report that Ukraine UkSATSE failed to report to Eurocontrol that at least one radar station was taken out of order. It was destroyed at June 16 2014. And still was unavailable at July 17, 2014.
Ukraine at least had at July 17 no primary radar coverage over Eastern Ukraine. I have not read this in the report.
DSB also failed to contact Eurocontrol to check if Ukraine had reported any malfunctioning of radars.
An DSB employee (Michiel Schuurman– Senior Air Safety Investigator) states in a document written by himself about radar data that air traffic controllers are interviewed after a major event.
Remarkably enough his employer DSB did not interview the controller responsible for guidance of MH17. DSB failed to mention in the final report that it did not interview the controller!
Last but not least: ICAO Annex 13 recommends the investigator to interview eyewitness on the ground. Something DSB failed to do so for unknown reasons.
DSB is a pot calling the kettle black!
