Hydrogen-Hybrid Drones are Taking Off in Australia

Hydrogen drones aren’t brand new – but the kind coming out of the University of Sydney are. University researchers have developed a hybrid system which eliminates many of the problems that hydrogen fuel cells may have while still offering a clean and long endurance fuel source. The following is a press release from The University of Sydney. Led by University of Sydney aerospace engineering PhD candidate Andrew Gong, the team of researchers – including Dr Dries Verstraete from the University’s School of Aerospace, Mechanical and Mechatronic Engineering (AMME), Dr Jennifer Palmer from Defence Science and Technology Group, and support from Northrop Grumman Australia – successfully piloted test flights late last month using a hydrogen fuel cell/battery/supercapacitor triple hybrid propulsion system.
