Lockheed Martin unveils its TR-X

Above you see the LM proposal to replace both the U-2 and the Global Hawk.  I find that interesting.  The Global Hawk has barely entered service and already planning is underway to replace it.  Has a critical flaw in its concept been discovered?  Is the USAF so worried about operations even in uncontested airspace that a stealth UAV is necessary?

We're being told something with this initiative (LM wouldn't be proposing something if they didn't see a market for it) but I'm not sure what.
