Boeing to Add Modification to P-8A Poseidon Production
On January 2, 2015 the Aerospace and Defense company, Boeing, was awarded a contract by the Naval Air Systems Command for the procurement of recurring Advanced Airborne Sensor Capability Platform Integration Kit In-Line modifications in support of the P-8A Poseidon . Contract work will be performed in Washington, California, New York, North Dakota, and is expected to be complete in April 2017. This $60 Million contract is an addition to Boeing’s $2.4 Billion contract for the production of P-8A Poseidon Aircraft that was awarded by the Navy on February 26, 2014. Based on Boeing’s next-generation 737-800 commercial airplane, the P-8A Poseidon gives the Navy improvements to anti-submarine, anti-surface warfare and intelligence, surveillance, and reconnaissance capabilities. In addition, the P-8A is able to drop and monitor weapons such as sonobouys, torpedos, and depth charges. It is planned for Boeing aircrafts
to provide a total of 117 P-8As to replace the current fleet of P-3 aircrafts.
