Boeing to Manufacture P-8A Wideband Satcom Kits Under $94M Navy Delivery Order

Boeing (NYSE: BA) has received a five-year, $93.6M delivery order to produce, test and install eight wideband satellite communication kits in the U.S. Navy’s P-8A Poseidon aircraft fleet.

The company will also support the integration and qualification of the satcom kits under the cost-plus-fixed-fee order, the Department of Defense said Thursday.

Work is slated to occur through April 2024 and the service branch will obligate $19.1M in fiscal 2019 research, development, test and evaluation funds at the time of award.

Eighty-three percent of the work will take place in Seattle and the rest in Maryland and Missouri.

The Navy awarded Boeing a separate $326.3M delivery order last month to integrate and test Increment 3 Block features on the maritime patrol and reconnaissance planes.
