Skunk Works originates from World War II when a special R&D centre was set up by Kelly Johnson at Lockheed.
The name Skunk Works originates from the original R&D centre, which was located next to a plastic factory and so a skunk became their logo.
Since the inception of the Skunk Works, this term has been generalised to apply to similar high-priority R&D projects at other organisations, which feature a small team removed from the normal working environment and given freedom from management constraints.
