Boeing will carry out damage tolerance analysis on the P-8A aircraft under a contract modification announced by the US Department of Defense on 5 August.

Under the contract, issued by the US Naval Air Systems Command, Boeing will perform damage tolerance analysis on the P-8A aircraft to determine the damage tolerance rating, and provide non-destructive inspections for structural components on the P-8A aircraft.

The P-8A Poseidon is designed to support maritime surveillance, anti-submarine warfare and anti-ship warfare operations. Boeing is supplying the aircraft to the multiple nations, including the US Navy, UK Royal Air Force, Royal Australian Air Force, Indian Navy and the Norwegian armed forces.

The analysis work will run through to March 2023.
