Boeing to Showcase New and Agile Solutions at Modern Day Marine

Boeing [NYSE: BA] is highlighting a diverse warfighting equipment portfolio – including an advanced high-performance tactical vehicle – during this year’s Modern Day Marine exposition.

The Marine Corps League event takes place Sept. 24-26 at U.S. Marine Corps Base Quantico. Boeing will display the Phantom Badger, a combat support vehicle that is small enough to fit in a MV-22 Osprey tiltrotor aircraft for transport.

The Boeing exhibits at Booth 2304 also will illustrate the versatility of aircraft such as the H-6U Unmanned Little Bird and MV-22 Osprey, as well as the latest in directed-energy and secured applications to protect assets and critical information for warfighters on the ground, in the air and in cyberspace.

“With the backdrop of world events, this year’s Modern Day Marine expo gains additional importance,” said Boeing Marine Corps Systems Vice President Dewey Mauldin. “We are combining our established expertise in aircraft, weapons systems and network capabilities with innovative and cost-effective solutions for present and future Marine Corps missions.”
