Sorry if already mentioned, but it sounds like the P-8's radar could be quite handy for overland tracking, if say you find your MPA operating over some sandbox for example, never happen would it?

Like a mini- JSTARS. "It is said the sensor is so sensitive that it can even pick up a formation of people moving over open terrain," Tyler Rogoway in 2014 wrote about the APS-149. "Also, the speed of the system's double-sided [electronically-scanned] array allows for multi-mode operations at one time with near-360-degree coverage, meaning that scanning, mapping, tracking and classifying targets can all happen near simultaneously, resulting in massive amounts of data for multiple platforms and decision makers around the theater and beyond to exploit"
