It seems inconceivable that the entity that established itself as one of the foremost aerospace pioneers of the last half-century should end up on the
sidelines of the UAV and UCAV revolution, yet, on the face of it, this is where the Skunk Works is: on the outside, looking in. For the past few
years, as J-UCAS has gathered momentum, ADP officials have let it be known that the Skunk Works has not been standing still - that there are advanced
UAV/UCAV concepts on the drawing board at ADP, many of which are under government consideration. A number of these may have progressed further in the
'black' world - there are persistent rumours that they have. However, it was only in June, at the Paris Air Show, that the Skunk Works/ADP was able
to provide hard details of a real, live project: the Morphing UAV.

Whoa, sounds very interesting. It can do both Recon , and attack missions, by changing it's shape in flight. I've heard stories about this before,
but never knew they were this far!
Intelgurl, is this the new UAS you were referring to in this thread: Skunkworks working on
ISR/Strike capable UAS
