The company received Dec. 26 the FAA registration number N234MQ for its proposed “T1“ drone prototype.

Boeing previewed its demonstrator for the MQ-25 unmanned aerial refueling tanker program in December two months after the service branch issued the final request for proposals.

Other companies that submitted bids for the program include Lockheed Martin and General Atomics“™ aeronautical systems business.

Northrop Grumman dropped out of the tanker drone competition in October.
