The Pentagon has awarded Boeing with a $115 million contract to provide logistics services and support for P-8A Poseidon maritime patrol aircraft for the US Navy and the government of Australia. 

“The Boeing Co., Seattle, Washington, is being awarded $115,244,897 for modification P00097 to a previously awarded fixed-price-incentive-firm target, firm-fixed-price, cost-plus- fixed-fee contract (N00019-14-C-0062) for integrated logistics services and site activation support of P-8A aircraft for the Navy and the government of Australia,” the Department of defense announced Tuesday. 

The P-8A Poseidon is an aircraft designed for long-range anti-submarine warfare; anti-surface warfare; and intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance missions.

Work is expected to be completed in September 2021. 

This modification combines purchases for the Navy ($103,394,262; 90 percent); and the government of Australia ($11,850,635; 10 percent), under a cooperative engagement agreement, the statement added.

Australia received the first aircraft on 16 November 2016, with the remaining 11 aircraft to be delivered by March 2020. It will replace the AP-3C Orions which are due for withdrawal in 2018-19.
