Is this the same Tic Tac aircraft that the Nimitz strike group intercepted back in 2004? It looks somewhat similar to the FLIR pod footage that was released recently by the DoD, but I'm not certain. I know McConnell AFB is near where the footage was taken, but it is surprising that there wouldn't be media coverage that such an object would be flying in daylight over a somewhat populated area.
Maybe the DoD is showing this technology to deter Iran and other aggressors from acting to the detriment of US policy, or simply going to use them to monitor/attack key infrastructure and say we didn't do it (doubtful).
