MCKINNEY, Texas, 5 Feb. 2011. Boeing awarded Raytheon Co. (NYSE: RTN) a low rate initial production contract to develop six long-range, multimission maritime and overland surveillance radars plus spares for its P-8A Poseidon aircraft.
The radars will be delivered to Boeing as part of the P-8A contract with the U.S. Navy. The P-8A replaces the P-3 aircraft and will be used for surveillance along the U.S. coastline.
The APY-10, the premier sensor for maritime and overland missions, was designed for the Navy's Poseidon aircraft and will replace the APS-137 radar. It delivers accurate and actionable information in all weather, day and night, for anti-submarine warfare, anti-surface warfare and intelligence, surveillance, and reconnaissance missions.
