MCKINNEY, TEXAS (BNS): Raytheon will develop six long-range, multimission maritime and overland surveillance radars plus spares for Boeing’s P-8A Poseidon aircraft.

The radars will be delivered to Boeing as part of the P-8A contract with the US Navy. The P-8A replaces the P-3 aircraft and will be used for surveillance along the US 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.

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, the company said in a release.
