Aviation Week has a couple of articles on the classified RQ-180 program:

The RQ-180 is an unmanned aerial system (UAS), designed for intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance (ISR) missions, and is the likely successor to the RQ-170 Sentinel.

Wonder why they changed from UAV to UAS? :hmmm: The hangars they reckon they're being stored in can accomodate aircraft with 130' wingspan. Are there any pics of one of these things on the ground for scale?

I haven't seen any photos, although the article mentions "publicly available imagery." I was surprised that Aviation Week seems to know as much as they do, but then I shouldn't be surprised at that. :)
