Hydrogen Drones -Y- Expertise
Summary:
Estonian SME provides bespoke EU-made highly customisable long endurance hydrogen drones with flight time of 1-2 hours for demanding tasks and operations. On-board processing allows for custom AI and machine learning algorithms. Payloads up to 2kg can be fitted allowing for a wide range of mission parameters ranging from survey and mapping up to surveillance and security with long flight endurance and minimal down-times. The company is open for commercial agreements with technical assistance.
Description:
Established in 2017, the Estonian SME was the first company in Europe to release a commercial hydrogen drone in 2018. It has since leveraged its experience and know-how to custom next-gen LiDAR survey payloads, hydrogen integrations, consultancy and its vision is to create a carbon neutral environment of drone based services for smart regions of the future.
The central offering is a long 1-2 hour endurance bespoke hydrogen drone with advanced on-board processing capabilities and full payload customisation.
Company´s extensive know-how in hydrogen technologies and integrations allow for tailor-made solutions for addressing specific requirements and/or limitations, such as implementing custom security protocols, configurations, sensors, communication channels or applications.
Partnerships and activities which are able to push the envelope for Unmanned Aerial Vehicles are sought to gain additional use-cases, insights, analytics and development paths.
The company is open for commercial agreements with technical assistance.
Advantages and Innovations:
* PEM (polymer electrolyte membrane) Hydrogen Fuel cells became mature and miniaturised enough to be used on drones in ~2017, the year where the compeny started its development for a hydrogen powered drone.
* Refuelling hydrogen drones takes just 1-2 minutes (instead of ~30 minutes for battery drones) thus minimising the down-time.
* Refuelling doesn´t require access to electricity meaning activities in remote locations or disaster response can be greatly simplified
* Hydrogen drones are fully green without emissions or any extra heat, vibration or noise signatures providing a large advantage over similarly long endurance petrol drones
* Due to a high energy density a compact form factor can be kept (5-6kg + 2kg payload)
* Travel is not restricted by IATA (International Air Transport Association) regulations as the on-board hybrid battery is less than 99Wh
* With long endurance and enhanced capabilities operations which previously required manned aviation can be replaced or complemented
* It´s possible to use the drone´s 800W fuel cell as a back-up power generator to charge other equipment.
* Hydrogen has the versatility to be also generated on the field through various means.
* On-Board processing (Nvidia Xavier NX) allows to run multiple machine learning / AI algorithms for custom functionalities and missions
* The drone is LTE enabled by default and can be controlled remotely from anywhere in the world, radio -Y- SatCom are available as fall-backs.
