May 26: Live Webinar on Hydrogen Fuel Cells for Small Unmanned Airvehicles
Webinar Sponsor: Fuel Cells Technologies Office
The Energy Department will present a live a webinar titled “Hydrogen Fuel Cells for Small Unmanned Airvehicles” on Thursday, April 26, from 1:00 p.m. to 2 p.m. Eastern Daylight Time. The webinar will highlight the Naval Research Laboratory’s incorporation of fuel cells into their Small Unmanned Airvehicles (UAVs), and the resulting fuel- and energy-saving benefits of this technology. Success of this new energy efficient system is due to advances in materials, electronics, thermal management, and optics—all integrated into an aerodynamically efficient package. The resulting fuel-cell-powered UAVs are relatively small (35 to 100 lbs.) but they are quiet and efficient, allowing them to do “big airplane” missions.
