LEWK is funded under the Pentagon's advanced concept technology demonstration program, designed to expedite the development of militarily-useful technologies.
To keep the cost down, he added, LEWK only would provide an "80-85 percent solution" to fulfill the so-called SEAD mission, or suppression of enemy air defenses.
The plan is for LEWK to be either an expendable or a recoverable truck, depending on the mission needs.
LEWK would fly up to eight-hour missions, at a speed of 70-150 knots, covering up to 1,000 miles.
