Boeing has awarded Raytheon a low rate initial production contract to develop six long-range, multimission maritime and overland surveillance radars plus spares for its P-8A Poseidon aircraft.
"Our APY-10 radar will provide Boeing with advanced technology built on generations of successful Raytheon radar systems," said Tim Carey, vice president for Intelligence, Surveillance and Reconnaissance Systems.
"We're committed to providing reliable systems that keep our customers safe and help them achieve mission success."
The radars will be delivered to Boeing as part of the P-8A contract with the U.S. Navy. The P-8A replaces the P-3 aircraft and will be used for surveillance along the U.S. coastline.
The APY-10, the premier sensor for maritime and overland missions, was designed for the Navy's Poseidon aircraft and will replace the APS-137 radar.
Building on more than 40 years of proven Raytheon technology, it delivers accurate and actionable information in all weather, day and night, for anti-submarine warfare, anti-surface warfare and intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance missions.
A member of the Boeing-led industry team for the Navy's P-8A program, Raytheon has previously delivered four APY-10 systems and spares to Boeing and is contracted to deliver an additional nine systems for the Navy's P-8A.
