The P-8I Poseidon is designed for long-range maritime patrol, anti-submarine warfare (ASW), and intelligence, surveillance, and reconnaissance (ISR) missions.

It is equipped with state-of-the-art sensors, including radar, sonobuoys, electronic support measures (ESM), and magnetic anomaly detectors (MAD), enabling it to detect and track surface ships and submarines with high accuracy.

The P-8I is capable of detecting, classifying, and engaging submarines using its onboard sensors and weapons systems, making it a potent ASW platform.

In addition to ASW, the aircraft can conduct a variety of missions, including maritime patrol, search and rescue (SAR), maritime interdiction, and overwatch support.

With its extended range and endurance, the P-8I Poseidon can conduct missions over vast oceanic areas without the need for refueling, enhancing maritime domain awareness and response capabilities.

It is equipped with a sophisticated communications suite, allowing seamless integration with naval and joint forces for coordinated operations and information sharing.

The P-8I features advanced data fusion capabilities, integrating information from multiple sources to provide a comprehensive maritime picture to operators and decision-makers.

The P-8, powered by a reliable high-bypass turbofan jet engine and equipped with an open mission system architecture, utilizes next-generation sensors for exceptional 21st-century performance.

The P-8I is operated by the Indian Navy and has demonstrated its capabilities in various maritime environments, including the Indian Ocean region and beyond, contributing to regional security and stability.

The P-8I Poseidon can be configured with a range of mission-specific equipment and payloads, allowing for tailored solutions to meet evolving operational requirements.
