BAE Systems is developing the mission computer system suite for the Indian navy’s P-8Is, a variant of the U.S. Navy’s P-8A Poseidon. Developed by a Boeing-led team, the P-8I is a multi-mission maritime patrol aircraft with capabilities to operate over land or water while performing anti-submarine warfare; search and rescue; and long-range intelligence, surveillance, target acquisition and reconnaissance.

BAE Systems said its mission computer system suite for the P-8I is a flexible and ruggedized processing platform that can be configured to meet the general purpose, input and output, video, voice, and graphics processing needs for modern military battle management requirements.

BAE Systems will begin deliveries to Boeing in 2011.
