How Long Does DNA Testing Take?
   First, to do DNA matches you need to have DNA samples you know came from the person.  For example, if you want to know if a dead person is, let's say Osama bin Laden, you must have known samples from Osama bin Laden.  You first need to ask - how do I really know the comparative samples I have came from Osama bin Laden?  The answer is you don't.  The USA has no samples of Osama bin Laden's DNA.  The government did have samples from several relatives of Osama bin Laden.  If the DNA testing was done abord the ship, the best it could do wuld be to show someing in UBL's family was killed.
   If you know your sample is good, you can continue with the DNA testing.  Even simple DNA testing for the purpose of proving parentage takes at least 3 days.Source: http://www.ornl.gov/sci/techresources/Human_Genome/elsi/forensics.shtml
 

   DNA testing is done by taking DNA extracts from biological testing, putting them into a gel matrix and then using probes to help extract certain markers. Most DNA tests are run at least twice, both independent of each other. This not only builds upon the credibility of the test but also helps ensure that no wrong data or incorrect marker analysis was performed on the first test. If any discrepancies are detected between the two tests then a new sample is used (when samples are collected there is usually an abundance of DNA present) and the entire test is performed again to understand where the discrepancy may lay. ... A majority of Courts, do not approve of the use of non laboratory testing as evidence. This is because the accuracy of the samples collected cannot be guaranteed if there is any area where the accuracy of a DNA test can be affected it is in the sample collection process. When non-laboratory tests are performed there is no way for a court to guarantee the samples came from who they say they did. In this situation court-approved testing involves the use of collection of the samples by licensed personnel who also verify the identity of the person who is providing the samples.

  Of course, as with anything in life human error can come into play. Even a DNA lab may mistakenly switch samples or key in data incorrectly. All of these factors are possible, but also are very rare in occurrence. If there is ever any doubt as to the authenticity or correctness of a test it can simply be performed again to confirm accuracy.

  Overall, DNA tests are the most accurate tests we have for using in situations where we need to know the positive identity of someone. They are the tests that do not lie, and cannot be influenced by taking drugs or other substances.  Source: http://www.dna-paternity-test.net/how-accurate-is-dna-testing.htm

Requirements for doing forensic DNA testing are quite high and unlikely to be available on a helicopter or a ship at sea.

  If you have the laboratory,  known good source taken from the person in the past, and tissue from the dead person, you can then do an analysis.  The key to the analysis is something known as the PCR (polymerase chain reaction).  PCR is a method to analyze a short sequence of DNA (or RNA) even in samples containing only minute quantities of DNA or RNA. PCR is used to reproduce (amplify) selected sections of DNA or RNA. Previously, amplification of DNA involved cloning the segments of interest into vectors for expression in bacteria, and took weeks.
   It is true that new procedures run by certified people in land-based accredited labs, by certified personnel can now be done in hours, but not likely in a helicopter or ship at sea.
