The Indian Navy has started the initial discussion with the DRDO for the development of a Special Mission Pontoon-like pod for its P-8I fleet that can be used for moving target indicators that can scan both water and land areas simultaneously.

The U.S has already developed a pod-based AESA radar system for their P-8A fleet but have put restrictions on its export to its current operators as it has some kind of secrecy around the technology that they want to protect.

Indian Navy is re-engaging the USfor the repeat order of 6 more P-8I Maritime Patrol Aircraft which was stalled earlier.
