Washington DC (SPX) Feb 16, 2011
Boeing at this week's U.S. Air Force Association (AFA) Air Warfare Symposium, will highlight a range of proven, low-risk, affordable products and services that will enable the Air Force to continue to dominate in the air, space and cyberspace. The symposium takes place Feb. 17-18 at the Rosen Shingle Creek Resort, Orlando, Fla.

"This annual AFA conference allows us the opportunity to listen to our Air Force customers, to better understand what they need to protect and connect people around the globe," said Jack Catton, Boeing Government Operations vice president of Combat Air Force Systems.

"It's also a chance for Boeing to reaffirm its commitment to delivering on its promises with the superior technology and capabilities that our Air Force needs to fly, fight and win, now and in the future."

Some of the solutions that Boeing will highlight at its exhibits and in its media engagements are the

+ NewGen Tanker;
+ P-8 Aerial Ground Sensor aircraft;
+ Phantom Eye and Phantom Ray unmanned airborne systems;
+ C-130 Avionics Modernization Program;
+ support and logistics services;
+ and military space programs such as Wideband Global SATCOM.

The Boeing exhibit this year will feature technology demonstration trailers for both the NewGen Tanker and the 737 Family of Systems.

"Boeing is very much the innovator in developing technology-based solutions to meet warfighters' current and future capability needs," Catton said.

"Our technology demonstration trailers do more than just provide an exciting interactive experience for our customers; they put tomorrow's technology in the hands of our customers today, so they can really get a feel for the advantages our solutions bring to their mission."

Also during this year's event, Boeing will provide information on a significant financial commitment to the Air Force Museum Foundation.
