Boeing tapped for P-8A upgrade as AAS and Harpoon move forward

Flightglobal – Boeing will receive a work package from the US Navy to design and incorporate “Increment 3 Block 2” improvements into the P-8A Poseidon maritime patrol aircraft. The P-8A was declared operational in 2013, and advanced communications, sensors and weapons capabilities are bring rolled out in three phases, with increments one and two already under way. This third phase, which targets initial operational capability in 2020, will broadly improve the P-8A’s ability to detect and target submarines and surface vessels as well as its signals intelligence and networking capabilities, the navy says.
