The aircraft logged three to four flights weekly and on several occasions flew more than one a day. TACIT BLUE owes some of its unique shape and size to the reconnaissance equipment it was designed to carry. A Hughes multi-mode-side-looking radar (SLAR) a predecessor to the ground surveillance radar used in Joint Stars, took up a large part of SHAMU’s structure. The SLAR on TACIT BLUE was part of an effort to test if a LPI (low probability of intercept) radar could be flown on a stealth aircraft without compromising its presence. ELINT (Electronic Intelligence) antennas for intercepting enemy communications were also part of TACIT BLUE’s reconnaissance systems. There were a total of five pilots who flew the aircraft. The first was Dick Thomas, a Northop test pilot. The air Force pilots were Lieutenant Colonel Ken Dyson (who was also a HAVE BLUE pilot) and Lieutenant Colonels, Wes Easter, Don Cornell and Major Dan Vanderhurst.
