Lockheed Martin Aeronautics has been awarded $260 million to provide structural mid-life upgrades and other modifications to four Greek Air Force P-3B surveillance aircraft.
This modification provides for the modernization and upgrade of four P-3B aircraft in support of structural mid-life upgrades, tailored phased depot maintenance, a country-specific designed mission integration and management system, and new avionics in support of the government of Greece.
The mid-life upgrade will provide a service life extension of 15,000 flight hours per aircraft.
Work will be performed in the US, Greece, Israel and Canada and is expected to be completed in December 2023.
The Hellenic Air Force and Navy operate six P-3B aircraft which are being upgraded.
