Let me explain a little bit - The Global Hawk was and absolute 'b******' to use 'on the fly' - You were not re-tasking with any speed at all, and each variant and service had its own little foibles which frankly made it a nightmare scenario.

Northrop then sat down, said 'Look, we can get the whole ground system sorted and make it faster, more agile and far more responsive to the combat commanders...' And were green lit. This work is still ongoing, but last year they hit it out the park at Edwards and the Global Hawk will mature each passing month into a truly phenomenal platform.*

*It always has been 'good, sometimes great, but this and more will make it a truly indispensable asset.
