How far advanced is our technology?

I see the F-35 has arrived at Edwards AFB. I saw the F-22 at the Nellis Airshow and can't wait to see it again this year. The technology that these two fighter jets display is very impressive. I wonder how far advanced from these two planes is our technology that is being developed out at Area 51 or other high tech. military research and testing centers? I continually wonder at this current date what is being tested? How advanced is it compared to these two jets that are being produced? Will the next fighter jet even need a pilot in the sky? Is Area 51 leading the way in remote controlled fighters and bombers? How many years does it take to go from Groom Lake to the fleet???
