Hamilton Sundstrand will supply the electric power generating system and power distribution systems. Together, these systems provide main power generation, primary and secondary power distribution and control of several utility systems aboard the aircraft. These systems will provide Boeing and its U.S. Navy customer the level of increased electric power required for the P-8A MMA mission, as well as a scalable utility management capability to support current and future mission equipment needs.
Hamilton Sundstrand will also supply the cooling system, which provides thermal management and control of the mission equipment aboard the aircraft. The cooling system design and integrated configuration employ multiple technologies that will enable increased cooling capacity as the P-8A MMA mission expands in the future.
"We are proud that Boeing has selected Hamilton Sundstrand for these extensive contract awards for their P-8A program," said Tim Morris, president of Hamilton Sundstrand Aerospace Power Systems. "These system wins reflect our ability to provide multiple value-added system solutions to Boeing and to meet the performance and reliability requirements of this advanced mission aircraft."
These systems have a potential program value that may exceed $300 million to Hamilton Sundstrand.
The P-8A MMA is a long-range anti-submarine warfare, anti-surface warfare, intelligence, surveillance, and reconnaissance aircraft. It possesses an advanced mission system for maximum interoperability in battle space. Capable of broad-area, maritime, and littoral operations, the P-8A MMA is expected to influence how the U.S. Navy's maritime patrol and reconnaissance forces train, operate, and deploy.
