Let me guess, it's some sort of blown fluidic/boundary-layer based flight control system to minimize elevon deflection and maintain the low RCS. A fluidic thrust vectoring system is also part of the system and the ADVENT-type engines that power it.
There has been difficulty getting it to "play nice", possibly in relation to a B-2 style electrostatic aerodynamic system.
