The Avenger UCAV was one of the potential contenders for the now shot in the head (and Navy's foot) UCLASS UCAV. However, the Navy butchered the

flight time capability has grown from 16 hours to 20.
The Avenger variant is being considered for the Stingray, but, well, we'll see if the Navy ever does anything with the program
The Avenger is a Reaper size platform. It was originally designed to operate off of air craft carriers.
There's still some interest in it at several different levels so it has a chance to actually be bought be someone.
