Research Institution

It is proposed to evaluate the feasibility of affordable fuel cells of simple design, having energy densities of 6 to 7 MJ/kg and about 3 Mj/liter, as candidates for the power supply in micro air vehicles. The feasibility of mass producing Fly-on- the-Wall- sized fuel cell power supplies will be determined from product and manufacturing design studies and by testing the product made from temporary tooling having the features of mass production technology.
