A weird aircraft design, very unusual to the eye. Proteus is a high altitude research platform, which can carry different types of payloads, it is seen carrying the Multi-Platform Radar Technology Insertion Program (MP-RTIP), an USAF project led by contractor Northrop Grumman to develop the next generation of airborne air-to-air and air-to-ground radar systems. Proteus is able to stay airborne for quite a long time and enjoyed the company of a chase plane (Piper Cheyenne) on this day.
