One more possibility, James. What if the competitors are offering different products for a competition, whose characteristics are distinct enough that they're actually suited to different things?

Looking at the Lockheed vs. GD models, that does seem to be the case. Though neither is really an ideal UUV/USV mothership, as the JHSV might be.

A similar variance led the USA's lightweight fighter competitors into service with the USAF (F-16) and Navy (YF-17 becomes F/A-18 Hornet), respectively.
