It's a variation on the current TERN design. Countra-rotating three bladed props, that wide, relatively short wing that looks like someone took an
Avro Vulcan and cut the wing chord in half, the stubby vertical stabilizers, they're all there. It's just missing the wheels.
Now the prop-powered one between the helicopter and the Proteus looks nothing like any TERN rendering I have ever seen. It almost looks more like
some sort of loitering higher altitude asset, like a cross between an RQ-180 and a reaper or the prop-powered HALE designs Boeing has toyed with and
flown over the years.
