La Gran Bretagna si accingerebbe ad acquistare un certo numero di moderni pattugliatori navali Boeing P-8 'Poseidon' ..... diventando, dopo Stati Uniti, India e Australia, il quarto paese ad utilizzare il velivolo .....
The UK is set to announce plans to obtain nine Boeing P-8 Poseidon maritime patrol aircraft, as well as extend the service life of the Royal Air Force’s Eurofighter Typhoon fighters.
The P-8 acquisition and Typhoon life extenstion will be part of a £178 billion ($270 billion) investment that will be made in defence equipment and support over the next ten years, says a statement from the prime minister’s office.
Prime Minister David Cameron will outline the plans when he unveils the Strategic Defence and Security Review (SDSR) in the House of Commons later today.

Anche 'DefenseNews' .....
The P8s will be used for maritime surveillance, anti-submarine and anti-surface ship warfare, "increasing further the protection of our nuclear deterrent and our new aircraft carriers," the statement read.
"These roles require an aircraft that can carry torpedoes, as well as being fitted with a broad range of sensors, including radar and sonobuoys, which are operated from the rear of the cabin by a team of specialists. These aircraft will also provide maritime search and rescue and surveillance capabilities over land."

The company was offering to convert the Royal Air Force’s 10 short-fuselage C-130J Hercules transports into an SC-130J configuration, incorporating a mission system and a variety of sensors for the MPA role.

Air Force and Navy testers are teaming to certify the Navy's new P-8 Poseidon maritime patrol aircraft to receive fuel from boom-equipped Air Force tankers, officials at Edwards AFB, Calif., announced .....
http://www.edwards.af.mil/news/story.asp?id=123469153
Since the P-8 is the only current naval aircraft beside the E-6B Mercury equipped with a boom-compatible refueling receptacle, the Navy called on Edward's 412th Test Wing for support.
Edward's modification shop was fully booked supporting Air Force test programs, so the Navy offered to instrument and modify Edwards' KC-135 for the tests.
"This is an outstanding example of utilizing trained personnel from other services to meet the needs of test programs," said Leonard Roen, with Edward's 412th Test Engineering Group, in a release.
"This cooperation will significantly improve the data collection effort that would not have been possible without this sharing of trained personnel," he added.
Data from the flights will also be used to develop accurate refueling dynamics to the flight simulators used by P-8 pilots for training and proficiency.
The Navy is procuring a total of 117 airframes to replace its P-3 Orion fleet.
Testers from Edwards and NAS Patuxent River, Md., plan to begin P-8 certification flights with the KC-135 at the end of March.

The UK has moved a step closer to filling a maritime patrol void left by the retirement of the Nimrod MR2 in 2010 after being approved by the US State Department to acquire nine torpedo-carrying Boeing P-8A Poseidons for the Royal Air Force.
Estimated to be worth $3.2 billion, the deal is unlikely to face opposition from Congress during the 30-day notification period as the advanced, radar-carrying submarine and surface ship hunter is already being exported to Australia and India.

Con l' aumento del numero dei velivoli che entrano in servizio ..... cresce, di conseguenza, il livello di esperienza da parte degli operatori .....
U.S. Navy crewmembers have given Boeing’s P-8A Poseidon positive reviews as the 737-derivative maritime patrol aircraft starts to enter service more widely in the U.S., as well as internationally.
The first P-8A delivery (of up to 15) to the Royal Australian Air Force is scheduled for November, when the country will join India on the growing list of international operators.
The UK also plans to acquire nine examples of the type.
Ultimately, the U.S. Navy plans to acquire 117 of the jets.
So far, six East Coast patrol squadrons have completed the transition from the venerable Lockheed P-3C Orion to the Poseidon after training by Patrol Squadron Thirty (VP-30), the Navy’s fleet replacement training unit at Naval Air Station Jacksonville, Florida.
VP-16, known as the “War Eagles,” achieved safe-for-flight status to fly the P-8A in January 2013 and became the first operational squadron that December when it deployed with six Poseidons to Kadena Air Base, Japan, in support of the 7th Fleet.

Nonetheless, the representative says that several countries have expressed interest in learning more about the P-1.

At first glance, the U.S. Navy’s new aircraft looks like nothing more than an airliner.
That’s until you look under the wing of the P-8A Poseidon.
Its pylons can carry some of the fleet’s most fearsome weapons, like the heat-seeking Sidewinder missile or the Harpoon anti-ship missile.
It may be built on a Boeing 737 airframe, but make no mistake: the P-8A is a warplane.

E anche la Nuova Zelanda potrebbe essere un futuro acquirente .....
New Zealand has outlined its defense acquisition priorities for the next decade, with new airlifters and maritime patrol aircraft (MPA) high on the agenda.
There are various potential airlift contenders, and the Japanese have made an early showing for the MPA requirement by sending two Kawasaki P-1s belonging to the Japan Maritime Self-Defense Force (JMSDF) to the Royal New Zealand Navy’s 75th anniversary celebrations and an international naval exercise.
----- ----- ----- ----- -----
Meanwhile, the RNZAF’s six Lockheed-Martin P-3K2 Orions are also due for a replacement in the mid-2020s as their airframe lives expire.
They have been continually upgraded over their service lives, and will receive further upgrades to increase available satellite bandwidth and underwater threat detection capability by 2020.
In addition to the traditional anti-submarine warfare mission, the new type should continue the Orion’s role in conducting air surveillance of New Zealand’s exclusive economic zone and maritime domain, respond to illegal, unregulated and unreported fisheries activity, and undertake search-and-rescue tasks.
Japan will offer the P-1, after recently easing constitutional restrictions on exports of military technology.
During their visit to RNZAF base Whenuapai, the JMSDF P-1s also took part in overland damage-assessment missions following an earthquake that struck the Kaikoura region on November 14, working alongside RNZAF and U.S. Navy Orions.
Other possible contenders for the New Zealand maritime surveillance aircraft requirement are the Boeing’s P-8A Poseidon and Saab’s Swordfish.

High Altitude Anti-submarine warfare Weapon Capability (HAAWC) ..... un acronimo che rappresenta una vera e propria rivoluzione nella conduzione delle operazioni ASW .....
A new torpedo upgrade that will fundamentally change the way US Navy airmen hunt submarines is on track to seek approval to begin low-rate initial production later this year, Boeing and Navy officials say on 28 March.
The Lockheed Martin High Altitude Anti-submarine warfare Weapon Capability (HAAWC) is in the midst of safe separation tests from the Boeing P-8A Poseidon.
A guided flight test is planned in late Fiscal 2017, allowing the programme potentially to order 140 high-altitude torpedoes total over the first two lots.
Following operational testing scheduled for completion by FY 2020, HAAWC also will be available to the P-8 fleet’s foreign customers, which currently include Australia, India and the UK, says Capt Tony Rossi, programme manager for Maritime Patrol and Reconnsassance Aircraft.

Secondo FlightGlobal ..... https://www.flightglobal.com/news/artic ... on-436763/ .....
Flight Fleets Analyzer shows that New Zealand neighbour Australia has four P-8As, with orders for an additional eight examples.
E' chiaro che l' eventuale acquisto del velivolo, sia pure in numero modesto, consentirebbe alla Nuova Zelanda una concreta possibilità di collaborazione ed integrazione con la vicina Australia nell' importante settore del pattugliamento marittimo .....

Anche la Corea del Sud .....
The Republic of Korea (ROK) will acquire Boeing P-8A Poseidon maritime patrol aircraft, the country’s Defense Acquisition Program Administration (DAPA) announced on June 25.
The aircraft will be procured via the U.S. Foreign Military Sales (FMS) procedure.
DAPA said that the P-8A was selected after a “comprehensive review of legal aspects, cost, schedule, and performance.”
However, there was no open evaluation of alternative MPAs such as the Saab Swordfish or the Airbus C295 ASW.
