Boeing will update acoustic analysis software used on the U.S. Navy’s Poseidon maritime patrol aircraft under a five-year, $94.9 million contract.
Naval Air Systems Command tasked the company to perform engineering work and provide supplies that include defect package fixes for the P-8A Acoustic Operational Flight Program, the Department of Defense said Tuesday.
Eighty percent of work under the sole-source indefinite-delivery/indefinite-quantity contract will take place in Huntington Beach, California, and the remaining 20 percent in Missouri, Maryland and Washington.
NAVAIR will obligate funds upon issuance of individual orders for AOFP development and sustainment.
Boeing’s P-8A aircraft platform is designed to support long-range anti-submarine and anti-surface warfare, intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance operations.
