If you remember LM and Boeing work together since the NGB and now cancelled Balckswift demonstrator.
I don't know why this two company don't go alone each like Northrop ?

The Navy is fighting unmanned aircraft tooth and nail right now. They're so hard up for money for ship and aircraft maintenance that they don't want to let anything take away from that. If they were to ground all the aircraft that need major checks, it would take three years to catch up.
They took the UCLASS, that had set objectives and technology, and "refined" it to basically a Predator that would fly off a carrier.
