US Navy has no plans for MMP, despite NGA study

The US Navy (USN) said it has no plans to field Boeing’s Multi-Mission Pod (MMP) aboard any of its intelligence, surveillance, and reconnaissance (ISR) platforms or to support efforts to develop an exportable version of the pod to allied nations, despite a 2019 National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency (NGA) study that explored integrating the MMP on the service’s P-8A Poseidon aircraft and MQ-25 unmanned aircraft system (UAS).

A P-8A is pictured undergoing maintenance at Naval Air Station Whidbey Island prior to an operational deployment.
