when the TGP is SOI and the "set sensor as SPI" function is selected, the line of sight point at ground intersection marks the SPI with a TMS Forward Long.

In every instance of creating a SPI it will always be a point in 3D space. Re-read the definition again at top of page 400.
same paragraphs continued "As the Maverick seeker slews/ ...As the TGP crosshairs are slewed/, the SPI slews along with it. To un-assign the SPI (as in no longer constantly updating/generating the SPI coordinates)from the TGP, you may either use the "reset SPI to steerpoint" function or assign the SPI to another sensor."
The TMS Forward long DOES NOT MAKE a SPI, it selects the sensor that generates the SPI.
