The article says Lockheed might have a demonstrator model working in ten years. It also said it might enter service in 2030. The plane doesn't exist yet, and won't for over ten years, if ever.
Which really means the SkunkWorks probably has the plane under construction and nearly ready to fly. They never confirm the existence of aircraft until they are either in service or nearly obsolete...
This aircraft would have been pitched secretly to the Air Force and had it been accepted, we would not be hearing about it now. It must cost too much and they are trying to get members of Congress to fund it.
