Higher, Farther, Faster?

Good article about the need for Quiet SuperSonic Transport.

"So, six decades after Chuck Yeager first went supersonic in the X-1, with the pace and volume of world of commerce growing dramatically, the opportunity for extremely long-range, high-speed aircraft has never been stronger. And yet, the old aviation mantra of "Higher, Farther, Faster" seems to have been suspended."

I figured this and/or space plane technology was where Groom Lake would be focused. Is it this or unmanned projects? Anybody have any opinions about what they are working on and what is going in that new hanger???
