The Triton (Maritime Global Hawk) is not a stealthy aircraft designed to operate in wartime conditions.

Seeing that it was operating in (or above) civilian airspace, and that there was (up to the last second) no shooting war going on, it is not unlikely that the transponder was switched on as well.
