"We are showcasing a full range of innovative

space and security businesses," said Tom Downey, senior vice
president, Boeing Communications. "We're looking forward to the
opportunities the show provides to meet with customers, partners

The Enduring Awareness Pavilion is an

domain – air, land, sea, space and cyberspace. It will showcase
more than 20 technologies – including the P-8A Poseidon,
Space-Based Space Surveillance system, Airborne Early Warning and
Control, eXMeritus HardwareWall, unmanned airborne systems from
ScanEagle to Phantom Eye, and other capabilities. The Pavilion, at
location OE/5 and adjacent to the Boeing Chalet, will be open

During the show's daily flying display, Boeing
will demonstrate the capabilities of its advanced, multi-role
F/A-18E/F Super Hornet fighter. Also on the flying program

attack helicopter. Visitors will be able to see these aircraft
until Sunday, 15 July 2012.
Together with the Royal Aeronautical Society,
Boeing is presenting airplanes built by students at the Yateley
School (Hampshire) and the Marling school (Gloucestershire). They
are the first two complete planes among the six being built by
schools participating in the "Schools Build a Plane Challenge" –
an initiative providing young people in UK secondary schools with
the opportunity to build an operational light aircraft from a kit.
