Company to showcase Super Hornet flight simulator; intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance advances
ST. LOUIS, April 2, 2014 -- Boeing [NYSE: BA] will feature an array of proven capabilities and innovative technologies at the 2014 Navy League Sea-Air-Space Exposition, including advances in electronic attack and intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance that help U.S. maritime services accomplish their missions.
The exposition is April 7-9 at the Gaylord National Resort and Convention Center in National Harbor, Md.
During the exposition, Boeing and U.S. Navy officials will together brief the media about the EA-18G Growler and P-8A Poseidon programs, while the U.S. Marine Corps will conduct a briefing on the V-22 Osprey. Boeing C4ISR leaders will hold a media briefing on Boeing’s capabilities beyond aircraft platforms that enhance situational awareness and aid decision-making, and Boeing subsidiary Insitu will brief on the Integrator unmanned aircraft system program.
Boeing's exhibit at Booth 2103 will include an F/A-18F Super Hornet flight simulator and models of aircraft, unmanned systems and precision weapon and missile defense solutions. The company will demonstrate how combining integrated networks and tactical systems with C4ISR capabilities allows for delivering critical, time-sensitive information to warfighters.
A mockup of a V-22 Osprey tiltrotor fuselage will be displayed by partners Bell Boeing in Booth 1646, along with Boeing’s Phantom Badger, a high-performance combat-support vehicle designed to fit in the V-22 and other aircraft.
