I wouldn't get too carried away by marketing. If this thing really was "Robust, Ready, Changing future air power" then the military not Boeing would be unveiling it.

Pentagon officials reportedly fear that Russia is planning to expand its own arsenal to as many as 8,000 deployed warheads a decade from now.

Quote
Department of Defense reports that China is “is developing and testing several new variants of missiles, forming additional missile units, retiring or upgrading older missile systems;  and developing  methods to counter ballistic missile defenses.” Furthermore, as the National Institute for Public Policy noted, “China is expanding its strategic nuclear forces; the question is the limit of that expansion,” the Obama administration estimated it to be “several hundred,” while some independent estimates are far higher.

Matthew Kroenig of the Atlantic Council notes that over the past decade, “spending on US homeland missile defense has actually decreased by roughly 46 percent from $3.7 billion to $2 billion.”

And others continue to write how OUR modernization, that has not even really started yet, is destabilizing.

The grad students are being victimized by having a large company pay for them to carry out a challenging project?

Its just a research project, that's why universities are involved. BAE Systems is probably interested in the potential of a developed system but not enough to devote its own resources fully to developing a testbed. Its a win-win for all sides. Manchester University is a close collaborator with BAE Systems, it cements that and gives both parties some hardware to show. It shares the costs, proves that universities are engaged with business (pleases the government), showcases wider investment into the aviation industry (again government pleased) and not least some PG students and research assistants have gained solid experience and BAE can look at them as potential employees when they graduate.
