Tail number comes back to an aircraft registered to the Missile Defense Agency, could be a housing for almost any test sensor, including side looking radar.

Black World, better leave it alone!

A second G-IIB (N178B, cn 125) was modified by the addition of a large dorsal fairing housing a telescope by Aeromet as the HALO II aircraft for the Missile Defense Agency.[11]

HALO-II and IV High Altitude Observatory #2
Gulfstream-IIB
HALO-II is an airborne observatory that offers excellent performance, adaptability and endurance for its mission. The capability to fly at very high altitude, above obscuring clouds and atmosphere, provides the HALO-II sensors a clear view of mission targets. The EO/IR sensors are mounted in a pod on top of the fuselage, enabling excellent azimuth field of regard and horizon-to-horizon elevation viewing. HALO-II is modified, maintained and operated by L3 Aeromet.

If you have the Aircraft Registration Number, you can find out all kinds of things...

Looks like a movable segment at the front of the hump, above the foreward most passenger window.

I'm guessing that a camera that looks sideways goes in place of that removable/movable looking panel.

I'm surprised it's so far forward.  Maybe it would cause inlet distortion if they moved it further back?

I went there first.

Then I grabbed a few keywords and the company name and tracked down the rest.

Test version of the interdimensional drive Tesla is working on.

Since it creates a wormhole that can't be closed, it will doom us all.

We have a civilian Missile Defense Agency?

Do we not have a USAF, US Army and US Navy responsible for various forms of missile defense, and they all fall under DoD?
