The U.S. Navy plans to purchase 117 P-8A Poseidon aircraft (shown) to replace its P-3 fleet. Initial operational capability is planned for 2013.

Boeing awarded Raytheon Co. a contract to develop six long-range, multimission maritime and overland surveillance radars plus spares for its P-8A Poseidon aircraft. The radars will be delivered to Boeing as part of the P-8A contract with the U.S. Navy. The P-8A replaces the P-3 aircraft and will be used for surveillance along the U.S. coastline. The APY-10 was designed for the Navy's Poseidon aircraft and will replace the APS-137 radar. It delivers accurate and actionable information in all weather, day and night, for anti-submarine warfare, anti-surface warfare and intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance missions.
