If the X-32 had won the JSF competition instead of the X-35, would the production version (F-32) have received EO DAS or some similar system? Is much known about how the systems/avionics/sensors on the F-32 would have compared to the F-35?

X-32 in production envisioned a retractable, rotating ball like sensor mounting, similar to what was envisioned for B-1A. Think of a concept like a retractable TRAM ala A-6E
