Abstract

The US Naval Research Laboratory has completed a successful flight test of the fuel cell powered XFC (eXperimental Fuel Cell) unmanned aerial system (UAS). During the flight test in June, the XFC UAS was airborne for more than 6 h. The fuel cell power plant in the UAS was developed and supplied by Massachusetts-based Protonex Technology.
