9th March 2020 - 09:32 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


Boeing was awarded an $800 million advanced contract modification to procure long-lead materials and support for P-8A Poseidon production and delivery.

The contract was confirmed on 6 March by the DoD.

Work will be carried out across the US to complete eight aircraft for the USN, four for delivery to New Zealand and six for South Korea.

The contract is expected to be completed by June 2020. The funds originate from the FY2020 naval aircraft procurement budget.

The P-8A carries out long-range anti-submarine warfare, anti-surface warfare and ISR missions over broad areas of maritime and littoral environments.
