Intelligent Energy acknowledges that flight time is one of the central challenges for drone operators. Longer endurance flights allow for increased efficiency in commercial operations, improved cost of ownership, and higher data volume. Read more >>

Long endurance drones can be applied especially effectively to linear inspection, mapping, offshore wind inspection, package delivery. Often, tasks in these areas are carried out with helicopters, which are crewed and expensive, or battery powered drones, which can have poor flight times and long recharging times are blockers to efficient operation.

Drones that use fuel cells, however, can offer advantages in both cases in terms of cost and safety.

In the full article, Intelligent Energy goes into the details of its lightweight IE-SOAR range of hydrogen fuel cell modules for long-endurance fixed wing, rotary wing, and VTOL applications.

The case study itself delves into the company’s collaboration with ISS Aerospace and the benefits of having fuel cells and hydrogen cylinders onboard, such as offering up to 90 minutes of flight and a range of up to 75km. On top of this, the company looks into other forms of power for UAVs.
