Hydrogen-powered drones take flight | Electric Vehicles Research

In a world first, a team of researchers from Sydney have successfully powered an unmanned aircraft flight with a triple hybrid propulsion system featuring one of the cleanest energies on Earth - hydrogen. Led by University of Sydney aerospace engineering PhD candidate Andrew Gong, the team of researchers - including Dr Dries Verstraete from the University's School of Aerospace, Mechanical and Mechatronic Engineering (AMME), Dr Jennifer Palmer from Defence Science and Technology Group, and support from Northrop Grumman Australia - successfully piloted test flights late last month using a hydrogen fuel cell/battery/supercapacitor triple hybrid propulsion system. For more information see the IDTechEx reports on autonomous vehicles and fuel cell electric vehicles . The recent tests follow on from four test flights using hydrogen fuel cells at the end of last year. The new resu...
