Wirth Research developing long-endurance hydrogen-powered terrain mapping drones

Wirth Research developing long-endurance hydrogen-powered terrain mapping drones 26 September 2016 UK-based Wirth Research has been contracted to develop and deliver a unique and bespoke prototype fleet of hydrogen fuel cell powered advanced terrain mapping drones for DERYL Research K.K.—a subsidiary of DERYL Group K.K., based in Japan. The all-new Unmanned Aerial System (UAS) will be capable of deploying a sophisticated terrain-mapping suite of sensors and on-board data processing capabilities on long-endurance flights over large areas of terrain. To allow the highest possible endurance, and allow the UAS to have zero in-flight emissions, the drone will be powered by an advanced hybrid power system, featuring a hydrogen fuel cell as its primary energy source. We have developed and validated some unique aerodynamic technology and flown some amazing UAS systems already. We ...
