Raytheon Company has made early delivery of a radar Mission Systems Integration Laboratory (MSIL) to Boeing for the Navy's P-8A MMA (Multi-mission Maritime Aircraft) program. The MSIL represents key hardware for the integration of Raytheon's APY-10 radar on the P-8A aircraft.

This is the second successful program delivery achieved this year by the Raytheon P-8A radar team, which shipped the APY-10 software design lab (radar) protocol emulator to Boeing in February.

The first production radar is expected to be delivered in 2008. "To Raytheon, early is on time. The MSIL was actually contracted to be delivered this month, but we shipped it early to Boeing on July 21," remarked Rick Kraft, Raytheon Space and Airborne Systems (SAS) director of maritime surveillance radars.

"The P-8A radar team has walked the talk, and they continue to make strides in meeting our commitment to the P-8A Boeing and Navy customers for this important program." The new Raytheon APY-10 surveillance and tracking radar for P-8A will be fully integrated with the Boeing mission system and contain numerous improvements, including a color weather mode, high-speed data collection, and an enhanced tracker.

It will also be smaller and weigh less than previous generation radars of its type. Raytheon SAS is the leading provider of sensor systems giving warfighters the most accurate and timely information available for the network-centric battlefield.
