Insitu advances UAV hydrogen fuel-cell technology

by Kelvin Wong

Boeing subsidiary Insitu has revealed fresh details about its ongoing work to advance hydrogen fuel-cell propulsion for unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs).

The company said in a 21 March statement that it has successfully completed the first fill test of a liquid hydrogen (LH2) storage tank designed for its ScanEagle 3 mini-UAV.

The trial – which was carried out at Washington State University’s Hydrogen Properties for Energy Research (HyPER) laboratory in February – comprised liquid hydrogen fill, pressure, and vapour generation testing.
