So, the question is, did the Northrop Sensorcraft become operational as…shikaka?
It seems extremely likely that the so-called "RQ-180" was derived from the Northrop Grumman SensorCraft configuration. The planform is essentially identical, and scalable, and the concept fits with the "family of systems" philosophy that informed the LRS-B (B-21) acquisition decision process. I would not be the least bit surprised to learn that "Shikaka" helped NGC win the bomber competition.
