Tata Advanced Materials Limited (TAML) has been awarded a contract from Boeing to provide composite interior closeout panels for the P-8 aircraft that cover the interior wall structure of the aircraft.

The P-8 is designed for long-range anti-submarine and anti-surface warfare, as well as armed intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance missions. A derivative of Boeing’s Next-Generation 737-800, it is capable of broad-area maritime operations, the company said in a statement Wednesday.

TAML is currently under contract to manufacture the P-8 tail cone and auxiliary power unit door fairing out of India. Additionally, TAML works for Dynamatic Technologies Limited in support of the CH-47F Chinook, a medium-to-heavy lift helicopter, and for P-8 cabinets.

In addition, Boeing and various Tata companies have established partnerships in India to manufacture aerostructures for Boeing’s commercial and military aircraft. For example, Boeing and Tata Advanced Systems Limited, have established a joint venture in India to produce AH-64 Apache fuselages, coproduce aero structures and pursue integrated systems development opportunities in India.
