The term Skunkworks was applied to the Lockheed Martin ADP, but is also a term for a small group of people working on a project in an unconventional way.
More generally it's applied to any situation where a group of people develop something quickly with minimal constraints from their managers (sometimes described as a "tiger team".) It comes with some pretty specific criteria too. See link for details.
