So, Lockheed Martin CEO talked about how his company is now ready to produce military aircraft that would be able to fly at 6 times the speed of sound. These hypersonic jets would be like nothing that exists so far in military arsenals and it would put the USAF leaps and bounds ahead of any other AF when it comes to air power, not that they aren't already ahead.

I wouldn't be at all surprised if the USAF was already using something like this and they are only now just getting ready to open up about it. Just my opinion.

The concept seems to be a UAV but I find myself wondering if they could be manned and if a human could even cope with going at speeds like mach 6.
