This is Lockheed MREUAV. Was described at forum earlier.

It's the 2018 or now more appropriately Next Generation Bomber concept from Boeing/Lockheed.  I guess this is the unmanned version.

Although I'm pretty sure they would have painted it, there appears to be a rectangular section on the forward fuselage that looks a bit like a cockpit window:

If you can deal with the host's theatrics the latest episode of Future Weapons has some EXCELLENT footage of the new X-47B.

Just looked it up, looks like it was first aired 3/26/2008   :-[  Ah well, still has a lot of good stuff.   (Didn't realize they were showing reruns, I don't watch it that often.)

Looking at the right, we have the answer about the shape of the engine's nozzle.

Here:  (Is it my imagination or is there a suggestion of a flap there at the trailing edge of the nozzle?  I've looked the video several times and it's definitely not a video artifact.)

It looks more like a holding tie.
