The Boeing P-8 is a true multi-mission maritime patrol aircraft, capable of anti-submarine warfare, anti-surface warfare, intelligence, surveillance, and reconnaissance, as well as search and rescue. The P-8 can fly quicker and reach higher altitudes (up to 41,000 feet) (490 knots). When searching for submarines, surface boats, or search and rescue survivors, shorter transit periods minimize the size of the Area of Probability. P-8 is also intended for low-altitude flights, and it has already demonstrated its worth in humanitarian and search-and-rescue missions.
