It's based at TTR, operated by the 30th. There is no known relation between this program an Darkstar or Polecat. Payloads and data links have definitely advanced quite a bit since Darkstar was flying.
It may have taken a very different design philosophy than other low observable aircraft. And there may be some new technologies at work, especially with regard to external apertures.
