LANCASTER, Pa., 3 Feb. 2010. Herley Industries Inc.'s Herley New England division won a contract valued at approximately $1.5 million for the production of integrated microwave assemblies to be used in the U.S. Navy's P-8A aircraft.
The P-8A Poseidon is the U.S. Navy's newest maritime patrol and reconnaissance aircraft. It is a long-range anti-submarine warfare, anti-surface warfare, intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance aircraft capable of broad-area, maritime, and littoral operations, explains a representative.
Richard F. Poirier, Herley's CEO and president, comments: "This is Herley's first production award for the P-8A program, following the completion of the development phase. We are pleased to be a part of this important U.S. Navy program, and anticipate receiving follow-on contracts from this prime contractor on this program over the next 15 years. My congratulations go to John McClay and the entire Herley New England team."
