I believe the poster is alluding to the image quality or resolution

Here is an update from Ricky Wright; S/V Nina and Crew update: We had a good search flight yesterday, but no find of our loved ones. Fortunately, the airplane is available again, when it was not before. Thank you to the corporateair company for making this happen, along with everyone's PRAYERS! We will search the Middleton Reef area on the flight tonight, as well as finish the search in the Newcastle area, when the military clears us to fly it. Keep your PRAYERS and DONATIONS coming!!! THANK YOU, THANK YOU

From Ricky Wright.....
Cherie

Re: Schooner Nina - MERGED 3 THREADS

Whilst we would like images like this, as ShaktiGurl has said, we do not have anything approaching this resolution. Nothing better exists, and even if we could arrange the satellites to be tasked to take better resolution, (which would take some time and in any case couldn't be guaranteed to be free from cloud cover) we would have to be multi-millionaires, or better, to be able to afford it. It would be cheaper to air-search the entire ocean, and that is way way beyond available finances (again, we would need to be multi-millionaires).
The resolution of images that we have, and are likely to have, will at best be sufficient to show Nina as a slightly lighter pixel against a dark ocean. And seeing that will require a lot of people looking at data. It is likely to produce a lot of 'false-positives' which would then somehow need to be evaluated.

So if a whitecape is anywhere it will look like a lighter pixel.
Even say it was a calm day and there were only 50 or so 'false positives' how would they be able to be evaluated?

In those waters theres white caps aplenty even on the most benign days.

The costs would be mammoth.
