AN/APY-10 masthead

The P-8A Poseidon aircraftOverview
The AN/APY-10 maritime, littoral and overland surveillance radar is a new design supporting the U.S. Navy’s next-generation multimission patrol aircraft, the P-8A Poseidon. Raytheon is an industry team member of the U.S. Navy P-8A program, led by Boeing. Raytheon’s AN/APY-10 was newly designated by the Navy because of extensive modifications over previous AN/APS-137 radars. These improvements were made by reducing size, weight and power; increasing MTBF; and adding additional target track capability, a new color weather avoidance mode, and room for technology growth.

The AN/APY-10 will be fully integrated into Boeing’s Mission Control and Display System for control, display and data distribution on the Poseidon. The P-8A radar is also the only system of its type to provide ultra-high resolution imaging modes for maritime and overland operations, delivering uncompromised performance in every operational environment.

A Legacy of Maritime Mission Support
The AN/APY-10 leverages more than 40 years of Raytheon expertise and innovation in maritime and overland surveillance systems. Raytheon has delivered more than 1,900 maritime radars for a variety of platforms worldwide. Raytheon’s AN/APY-10 radar for the U.S. Navy’s P-8A Poseidon provides superior maritime, littoral and overland surveillance capabilities for assured anti-submarine warfare, anti-surface warfare, and intelligence, reconnaissance and surveillance mission support. An exportable system design, the AN/APY-10(I) is available for certain international customers, providing comparable radar performance.

Building on previous generations and proven technologies, the AN/APY-10 delivers accurate, actionable information, ensuring customer success in a multimission operational environment.

The Poseidon Industry Team
The P-8A is being developed by a Boeing-led team that consists of CFM International, Northrop Grumman, Raytheon, GE Aviation and Spirit AeroSystems. For additional information regarding the P-8A Poseidon please visit: www.boeing.com/defense-space/military/p8a/
