submarine has joined the search for Malaysia Airlines Flight 370 in the southern Indian Ocean, boosting the Australian-led operation’s ability to scour the seabed for the plane’s black box flight recorders whose batteries are running low.

The U.K. Ministry of Defence said it had deployed the submarine, HMS Tireless, to assist with the multinational search for Flight 370, even though a lengthy hunt for floating plane debris in an area of sea the size of Arizona has yet to find anything.

“With her advanced underwater search capability, HMS Tireless will be able to contribute to the attempts to locate the missing plane,” the Ministry of Defence said in a statement.

The U.K. has also dispatched another military vessel–HMS Echo–to the search zone, which was moved closer to Australia on Wednesday. The search area—some 1,500 kilometers (932 miles) northwest of the Western Australian capital of Perth—overlaps part of the area scoured by military aircraft and ships previously.
