  Aviation Week : Two-Stage-to-Orbit ''Blackstar'' System Shelved at Groom Lake?
Now facing the possibility that this innovative "Blackstar" system may have been shelved, we elected to share what we've learned about it with our readers, rather than let an intriguing technological breakthrough vanish into "fl world" history, known to only a few insiders.
THE SPACEPLANE'S SMALL CARGO or "Q-bay" also could be configured to deliver specialized microsatellites to low Earth orbit or, perhaps, be fitted with no-warhead hypervelocity weapons--what military visionaries have called "rods from god." Launched from the fringes of space, these high-Mach weapons could destroy deeply buried bunkers and weapons facilities.
A former Lockheed Skunk Works official once expressed confidence in the X-33 prototype orbiter's powerplants, noting that "they have history." Whether this implies the aerospikes had flown before, perhaps on an XOV, or simply referred to ground test-firings is unknown.

  Blackstar: the US space conspiracy that never was?
The fuel for the aerospike, AWST claims, is "believed to be a boron-based gel having the consistency of toothpaste and high-energy characteristics, but occupying less volume than other fuels".
AWST says: "One Pentagon official suggests that the Blackstar system was 'owned' and operated by a team of aerospace contractors, ensuring government leaders' plausible deniability.
AWST claims technicians at a company plant in St Louis in the late 1980s and early 1990s "said much of the XOV's structure was made of advanced composite materials".

The green door is still closed." In a half-page editorial, AWST also calls for faster dissemination of space-derived information to the troops: "...
Reconnaissance satellite problems aren't going to be fixed from inside the IC; it's going to take continued pressure from other users -- mostly the military -- to get the situation remedied.
Theater commanders want SR-71, for example, because they have learned that support from other systems can be taken away from them in an instant if higher authorities perceive a more important use for the assets.

The figure of how much lighter a UCAV would be relative to a manned aircraft varies a bit depending on which source you use, but it is usually given as a significant figure.
Simplistic, I know, but when I think of UCAVs, I often think of the metaphor of a foxhunt - a pack of hounds to do the tracking and initial subduing of the quarry, and the human riders on the horses in overall command and giving the coupe de grace.
One of the other reasons, in addition to the points that Brett made, why the Boeing JSF wins the "Fat Albert Award in Fighter Design" is Boeing's philosophy behind their design.
