Description: The Sea Avenger is a carrier-based aircraft derived from the Predator C Avenger Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV) to fulfill the US Navy's requirement for an unmanned carrier-launched airborne surveillance and strike (UCLASS) system. The aircraft is based on an open, modular architecture that provides plug and play system configuration, configuration management, and significant flexibility for rapid, controlled change, adaptation, and growth. The air vehicle offers high-speed long-endurance, Intelligence, Surveillance and Reconnaissance (ISR) and precision-strike capabilities operating into the carrier air wing. General Atomics Aeronautical Systems announced the Sea Avenger program launch in early May 2010. The system will be developed on company funds.

The key elements of the Sea Avenger aircraft are: a highly fuel-efficient engine and inlet design; retractable electro-optical/infrared (EO/IR) sensor suite; internal weapons bay; and folding wings. The airframe was also designed with the flexibility to accommodate carrier suitable landing gear, tail hook, drag devices, and other provisions for carrier operations. The Sea Avenger will be fitted with a Pratt & Whitney PW545B jet power plant, a Lynx Synthetic Aperture Radar (SAR), various EO/IR camera systems, and up to 3,000 pounds of internal ordnance. It will be capable of flying at 400 KTAS for 20 hours reaching an altitude of 50,000-ft.
