Remember the DOD has two budgets. The $33M comes out of the public one. It establishes that Lockheed is doing something in that (ahem) space. It doesn't mean it's the only money they get.

The real question is what DOD wants that for.
The oficial answer is the high orbitals but what for?
 
That didn't take long. I would say our new space force needs a dependable, long lasting electrical supply for propulsion and "defensive measures".....without the need for solar panels and batteries.

Both capable of extended or far ranging missions.

Not dependent on sunlight or storage devices. And lots of juice whenever you need or want it.
