The Phantom Works division is the advanced prototyping arm of the Defense and Security side of The Boeing Company. Its primary focus is developing advanced military products and technologies, many of them highly classified, and has produced breakthroughs in defense, space and security.

Founded by McDonnell Douglas, the research and development group continued after Boeing acquired the company. Its logo was derived from the McDonnell Douglas F-4 Phantom combat jet.

Phantom Works' organization mirrors that of Boeing's Defense business units, developing new products for their "sister" units. Their ideas are further developed by the Boeing research and technology organization, which adds engineering and manufacturing technologies for use by Boeing's Commercial and Defense units.

An international group does modelling and simulation work for various governments.

Boeing operates secretive facilities in the United States,[2], Britain,[3] Australia,[4] and India.[5]

Donation

I'm semi-retired, i.e. forced unemployment, and have a modest standard of living.  So I plan to give all extra donation, beyond my immediate needs, to several of my favorite charities.
