Australian authorities say electronic signals reportedly detected by a Chinese ship involved in the search for the missing Malaysia Airlines plane are consistent with an aircraft black box.

"I have been advised that a series of sounds have been detected by a Chinese ship in the search area. The characteristics reported are consistent with the aircraft black box," Australian Air Chief Marshal Angus Houston, head of the joint agency coordinating the operation, said in a statement.

Houston said earlier reports that the Chinese ship, Haixun 01, had detected pulse signals in the Indian Ocean related to MH370 could not be verified at this time.

"A number of white objects were also sighted on the surface about 90 kilometres from the detection area. However, there is no confirmation at this stage that the signals and the objects are related to the missing aircraft," Houston said.

China's official news agency earlier reported that a black box detector deployed by Haixun 91, picked up a signal at 37.5Hz per second Saturday at around 25
