Boeing has announced it has received a USD 7,039,596 cost-plus-fixed-fee order against previously issued agreement to procure non-recurring engineering for the design, fabrication and correction of deficiencies required for the delivery and installation of retrofit kits for Navy P-8A aircraft, the company said.
the agreement includes Increment 3 Engineering Change Proposal (ECP) 6 capabilities.
Work will be performed in Puget Sound, Washington.
The P-8A ECP 6 provides a significant modification to the baseline aircraft, installing new airframe racks, radomes, antennas, sensors and wiring, while incorporating a new combat system suite with an improved computer processing and security architecture capability at the higher than secret level, a wide band satellite communication system, an anti-submarine warfare signal intelligence capability, a minotaur track management system and additional communications and acoustics systems to enhance search, detection and targeting capabilities.
Work is expected to be complete by May 2021.
