...can be found at Boeing's Phantom Works site. It's chock full of information on next generation launch systems and unmanned aircraft projects.

Not sure about the CRW. The faster helicopters become the less efficient, as to provide horizontal speed you need short wide rotor blades and for good hover capability it helps to have long narrow blades. Hence the tilt-rotor projects such as the V-22 Osprey. Still, it's worth a try ... like the attempts to build a Cyclogiro.
