Development started together with the Aurora Corp. from 1998, flight tested only 120 days after that, total cost less than 1 mil. USD, primary purpose is the basic research of the aerodynamically unstable concept and developing the necessary flight control system.

It's a twin engine design, with a flattened exhaust. AFAIK, it was built to test the control surfaces and flight control laws of a representative LO configuration. I know people who worked on it, if you have any questions I'll be glad to ask them.

Looks like the UCAV EDI from the 2005 movie, 'Stealth'. Makes you wonder if they're working on the FA-37 Talon as well.

EDI and Talon were Northrop Grumman ;)
