Boeing team installs radar antenna on P-8A Poseidon

A Boeing [NYSE: BA] and a Raytheon employee complete installation of an APY-10 radar antenna on P-8A Poseidon test aircraft T2 last month at the Boeing Developmental Center in Seattle. T2 is the P-8A program's primary mission system test article.

Following completion of the next phase of radar installation and additional instrumentation, T2 will enter the U.S. Navy's flight test program in early 2010. During flight test, Navy and Boeing pilots will verify the performance of all aircraft sensors.

The P-8A radar antenna was developed and delivered by Raytheon. Boeing's industry team is building and testing five anti-submarine warfare, anti-surface warfare, intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance aircraft as part of a System Development and Demonstration contract awarded in 2004.
