Boeing Receives $146M Navy P-8 Trainer Modernization Order

Boeing (NYSE: BA) will implement hardware and software updates to a training system designed for U.S. Navy’s P-8 maritime patrol and reconnaissance aircraft pilots under a $145.7 million order from the Naval Air Warfare Center Training Systems Division.

The cost-plus-fixed-fee, firm-fixed-price order is for engineering and manufacturing development work on Increment Three Block Two trainers, the Department of Defense said Friday.

P-8 training modernization efforts encompass operational flight, weapons tactic, mission systems desktop and support center operations.

The Navy will obligate $44.2 million at the time of award using fiscal year 2023 research, development, test and evaluation, and aircraft procurement funds.

Eighty percent of the work will occur at Boeing’s St. Louis facility and the rest in Florida and Washington state.

DOD expects the project to conclude in March 2026.
