The design of the P-ISR ("RQ-180") was almost certainly applied by Northrop Grumman to the winning LRS-B design that became the B-21 Raider, just as the Northrop Grumman proposal for the canceled NGB program shared the cranked kite layout of the X-47B and one NG SensorCraft proposal. It'd be interesting to see why Northrop Grumman chose the wing layout of the "RQ-180" for the B-21 design rather than the cranked kite layout of the X-47B and one of its SensorCraft proposals.
