The P-8I, a variant of the P-8A Poseidon, features open system architecture, advanced sensor and display technologies, and a worldwide base of suppliers, parts, and support equipment. India is the first international customer for the P-8I.

Boeing signed a contract with Hindustan Aeronautics Ltd. (HAL) for the India-based manufacturer to provide weapons bay doors for eight P-8I long-range maritime reconnaissance and anti-submarine warfare aircraft that will be delivered to the Indian Navy. Under the terms of the $4.7 million contract, HAL will deliver the first set of doors to Boeing in Seattle, WA, by the end of the year. The P-8I is a variant of the P-8A Poseidon that Boeing is developing for the U.S. Navy. Boeing will deliver the first P-8I to India within 48 months of the original contract signing, which took place in January 2009.
