General Atomics' aeronautical systems business and L3 Technologies have demonstrated a full-band signals intelligence technology developed for use on a medium-altitude long-endurance remotely piloted aircraft platform.

The MQ-9 Predator B RPA carried a pod with SIGINT tools during a test that took place last month in Yuma, Ariz., the companies said in a joint statement released Monday.
