Besides installing a probe along with associative piping and electrical cabling, Northrop added long endurance seats that will enhance field of view in the cockpit and reduce fatigue over longer missions.

Under the engineering, manufacturing, and development (EMD) contract awarded back in 2013, the company will modify three aircraft for testing followed by retrofits and production cut-in starting from 2018.
