Abstract
ORBITEC proposes an innovative Modular Intelligent Hydrogen Transfer System (MIHTS) to meet USAF vehicle fleet needs for hydrogen-fueled transportation applications. It is widely anticipated that a hydrogen energy economy will evolve and become the standard source of fuel for transportation, and other energy requirements, in the US and abroad. Hydrogen offers the promise of a renewable energy source, nearly zero emissions, elimination of greenhouse gas production, the ability for localized production plants, and a reduction and eventual elimination of foreign dependence for US fuel needs. The USAF plans to capitalize on the many benefits of hydrogen and is currently investing in hydrogen energy infrastructure to meet several operational needs. ORBITEC proposes an innovative approach to a critical element of this infrastructure, a low-cost, safe, mobile, and reliable hydrogen transfer system to fill storage tanks and refuel/defuel a myriad of USAF hydrogen powered vehicles. The unique MIHTS innovation allows the diverse hydrogen transfer requirements of several different storage and hydrogen production technologies to be met by one efficient system. The Phase II project will focus on the development and delivery of a fully functional refueling station to meet hydrogen dispensing requirements at Robins AFB and demonstrate key Phase III MIHTS technologies.
