After the rash of "flying saucer" sightings in the late 1940s (earlier secret tests of U.S. or captured German aerial craft?) this expression was replaced a decade later by "unidentified flying object" or UFO to include all unknown objects in the sky regardless of their shape or motion. Since all flying saucers are UFOs but not all UFOs are flying saucers, then describing the flying saucer shaped X-47B as a "UFO-like vehicle" is very misleading since all U.S. manufactured aircraft, past and present, would then fall into this all-inclusive expression. I am personally aware of 3 manufacturers within the greater Toronto area that build manned and unmanned UFO-like, or more precisely, flying saucer shaped aerial craft. They all have been approached by Canadian and foreign corporations or agencies, including military and police/law enforcement, who want to deploy such aerial craft over cities for 24 hours/7 days a week surveillance. These manufacturers are in addition to the many hobby shops that sell scaled down versions of similar flying saucer shaped remote controlled "toys" that can take-off, landing vertically and hover over one place. There are ongoing discussions that include York University space scientists and engineers in the building or purchasing of our own small fleet of trangular shaped mini-shuttles such as the Dream Chaser which are all based on NASA's wingless "lifting body" technology that goes back to the X-20 Dyna-Soar spaceplane of the early 1960s. Crews up to 12 at a time could be sent to the International Space Station and soon to Bob Bigelow's (of UFO fame) orbiting Space Hotel and China's own space station - as well as for rapidly deployment anywhere in the world (to get the attention and support of our military who are still waiting for their own fleet of equally expensive F-35 Joint Strike Fighters) wherever there is a small airfield, just like the one at Canadian Forces Downsview where pilots and astronauts are trained south of York University.
