India Signs $1 Bn Deal With US Firm For Four Poseidon-8I Aircraft

July 28, 2016

India on Wednesday signed an over USD 1 billion deal with American defence and aerospace major Boeing for procuring four additional ‘Poseidon-8I’ long-range maritime surveillance and anti-submarine warfare aircraft.

The contract is a follow-on order to eight P-81 planes already bought by India in a direct deal with the firm worth USD 2.1 billion, defence sources said.

The contract was inked during the ongoing visit of US Under Secretary for Defence on Acquisition Frank Kendall, and is seen as a sign of growing Indo-US defence ties, they said.

Nod to six more surveillance planes for Navy

Nov 29, 2019

The Ministry of Defence has okayed the purchase of six additional Boeing P8-I maritime surveillance aircraft. It has accepted the need to procure 14 heavy helicopters for the Coast Guard and given the go-ahead to produce airborne surveillance aircraft for the Indian Air Force.

The Defence Acquisition Council, chaired by Defence Minister Rajnath Singh, today gave nod to the over Rs 22,800-crore capital procurement. The Navy has been using Boeing P8-I for multiple roles over sea and to keep an eye on land-based assets.
The harpoon missile can be fitted onto the plane for killing submarines. The DAC okayed procurement of Twin Engine Heavy Helicopters for the Coast Guard to prevent maritime terrorism, infiltration by sea routes and rescue ops.

Also, the DAC revalidated ‘Acceptance of Necessity' for procuring additional Airborne Warning and Control System (AWACS) aircraft.
