Boeing has been awarded a $35.9 million worth contract to provide upgrades to P-8A maintenance device training system for the U.S. Navy and the government of Australia.

“The Boeing Co., Seattle, Washington, is being awarded a $35,969,268 modification P00107 to a previously awarded firm-fixed-price contract (N00019-14-C-0067) for the procurement of P-8A maintenance device training system production concurrency upgrades in support of the U.S. Navy and the government of Australia,” the US Department of Defense announced Monday.

The P8 maintenance training system provides interactive, high-fidelity simulations. They are built on actual mission systems software. The P8 training system offers full-scale replicas of aircraft components in the hardware-based trainers. 

According to Boeing’s website, P-8 training system offers a highly comprehensive aircrew training program at a fraction of the costs required in live aircraft training. It combines equipment, software, courseware, personnel and logistical support. Boeing’s training solution simulates aircraft and mission systems.

Work will be performed in Jacksonville, Florida; and Edinburgh, Australia, and is expected to be completed in January 2020, the statement added.
