Boeing has won a $22 million modification contract to provide for additional acoustics software support activity and engineering support for US Navy's P-8A Poseidon aircraft.
In addition, this modification incorporates virtual machine efforts and develops and integrates software for Multi-static Active Coherent Enhancements, the US Department of Defense said in a statement Monday.
Designed for long-range anti-submarine warfare, anti-surface warfare and ISR missions, the aircraft is capable of broad-area maritime and littoral operations. It is also effective at humanitarian and search and rescue missions.
Work is expected to be completed in January 2022.
