The rocket fuel response is correct, as are the others regarding radioactivity picked up in space, and power source readouts. These craft are only
used to determine whether its method of space flight can be used over and over again. It's fairly bare bones. Like an airplane with no pilot and one
rocket engine strapped onto it. Once the means are discovered to carry out such a flight while not exceeding a particular budget, then other vehicles
will be fitted with that same flight technology.
As for the meters, fumes/toxins, as well as electrical readouts are performed prior and post test flights to ensure that there is no excess being
vented as well as doing an exterior check that when the fuel lines are taken out that the degaussing levels are working as intended. These are fields
radiating out that enable the the craft to enter into stealth prior to entering an enemy radar's field of "view."
Another piece of equipment not shown in these photos is much like a laser that one of the officers will run along the sides searching for cracks or
shifted plates that could possibly cause a very fatal scenario upon launch and/or descent.
Payload includes new transmitters that work very differently than on current jets and shuttle. Defensive countermeasures are too tightly under wraps
so I can't help you there but rest assured, at least one is a very expensive satellite jammer and "decryption engine," that actually (no lie) works in
a way that when enabled will try to hack into whatever is chosen. Whether to hide its presence or for malevolent intentions, I can't say.
In any case, this is the equivalent of the Wright brothers airplane when it comes to our (USA) nations future military space craft.
All the best to everyone~
