"Why would DARPA be going ahead with this program if the tech is already being used in the B-21?"

I am 100% sure that the B-21 has a fully active wing.

Now, why would DARPA replicate research already completed by Northrop Grumman? Well, they, DARPA want to move into a flight regime where the worries of stability, controlability and stall are ever present. A bomber is not a dog fighting knife fighter, and a dog fighter is not a 76,000 feet cruiser.

Lots to take awa, but there is a whole slew of research and development behind it all (just happens that a tonne of it is Northrop's intellectual property)
