This is a media curation page for the PIRatE Lab's AARR Program.  We are developing practical, low cost programs to monitor resources in our coastal zone (the land near the ocean and the ocean near the land) with Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs aka "drones") overhead and subtidal Remotely Operated Vehicles (ROVs) .  Enjoy!!

UAS Magazine – The Latest News on Unmanned Aerial Systems - Hydrogen fuel cell-powered drone sets new flight time record

UAS Magazine – The Latest News on Unmanned Aerial Systems - Hydrogen fuel cell-powered drone sets new flight time record | Remotely Piloted Systems | Scoop.it
MetaVista Inc., a South Korean company specializing in hydrogen power, flew a quadcopter drone for nearly 11 hours by pairing its technology with an Intelligent Energy fuel cell module. It's believed to be the longest flight time of its kind.
Tyler Kacereks insight:
The longest liquid hydrogen fueled drone flight.  It is unclear whether or not the drone was carrying the fuel or if it was on the ground from the pictures.  Still an amazing feat with only 390 grams of liquid hydrogen for 10 hours 50 minutes.

UAS Magazine – The Latest News on Unmanned Aerial Systems - Drone powered by fuel cell sets new UAS industry benchmark

UAS Magazine – The Latest News on Unmanned Aerial Systems - Drone powered by fuel cell sets new UAS industry benchmark | Remotely Piloted Systems | Scoop.it
The advantages of hydrogen fuel cells as a UAS power source were recently demonstrated when a 44-pound drone carried an 11-pound payload nonstop for 70 minutes, a new industry benchmark. The project is supported by Innovate UK.
Tyler Kacereks insight:
This article was great because I found out the basics of the hydrogen fuel cell.  The flight time and payload were amazing with the 6 liter hydrogen cylinder at around 4300 psi.
