Boeing to feature innovative maritime capabilities at Navy League Expo

At this year’s Navy League Sea-Air-Space Exposition, Boeing will showcase an array of proven maritime capabilities and innovative technologies, including advances in intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance, that help U.S. maritime services accomplish their missions.

The exposition is April 8-10 at the Gaylord National Resort and Convention Center in National Harbor, Md.
Boeing’s exhibit at Booth 2103 will feature 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 allow 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 2713.

During the exposition, Boeing and U.S. Navy officials will together brief the media about the Super Hornet, Growler, and P-8A Poseidon programs, while the U.S. Marine Corps will conduct a briefing about the V-22. Boeing subsidiary Insitu will discuss its unmanned Integrator program.
