GM Providing Fuel Cell Technology to Navy for Unmanned Undersea Vehicles

General Motors will be teaming up with the U.S. Navy to develop hydrogen-powered unmanned undersea vehicles (UUVs). Fuel-cell UUVs have the capacity to operate independently 70 days at a time, and would replace more limited battery-drive systems currently in use in so-called UUVs, according to Navy officials. “If you want long endurance you really need fuel cells,” said Karen Swider-Lyons, head of the Alternative Energy Section at the Naval Research Laboratory. In November, GM signed a multi-year contract with the U.S. Army to build and demonstrate an all-terrain vehicle powered by hydrogen fuel cells. The fuel cell reconnaissance vehicle is being built for the U.S. Army Tank Automotive Research, Development and Engineering Center. GM said that the demonstration will show the unique advantages its fuel cell technology can offer in an all-terrain tactical application. The N...
