Boeing has won a $23.4 million contract to provide logistics support to Poseidon P-8A aircraft belonging to the United Kingdom (UK).
Contractor logistics support includes initial acceptance and breakdown of four aircraft and provision of training with an eight-month detachment to the UK to establish initial operational capability as well as subsequent full operational capability, scheduled aircraft maintenance, support equipment maintenance, engineering reach back and technical assistance, the US Department of Defense said in a statement Thursday.
The Boeing P-8A aircraft is designed for long-range anti-submarine warfare, anti-surface warfare and ISR missions. It is capable of broad-area maritime and littoral operations.
Work is expected to be completed by December 2020.
