Doosan Mobility Innovation have leveraged hydrogen-based clean fuel for long-range drone applications.
The range of any UAS platform is dependent on how long it can remain powered for a single flight, and several companies are working to try and balance weight, range, and time in the air using advanced battery technologies or alternative fuels to try and extend that range. For Doosan Mobility Innovation, the future of fuel may be in hydrogen-based fuel cells. These cells combine hydrogen and oxygen to create electricity, and could potential allow for much longer flight times and distances. With extended raise in the air, deliveries to remote areas, search and rescue operations and other large-scale work for inspections, etc. are more accessible - all without a battery swap. We caught up with Doosan to discuss how their hydrogen fuel cell works, and how fleets can get deliveries of hydrogen whenever and wherever they need it.
