Don't mean to alarm you, but Boeing has built an unmanned fighter jet called 'Loyal Wingman'

Black Helicopters

Isolated transmistters and receivers

Modern stealth aircraft can all be found using passive radar where a strong transmissions from one transmitter are received at a second location to find the the stealth target. That looks like the real role of this aircraft but it won't be in close formation like a typical wingman, it will be close enough to be the target for HARM type missiles but far enough away to be the transmitter for passive radar.
