IE-SOAR 1.2kW

A unique solution extending drone flight times presently constrained by the limitations of batteries.

IE-SOAR 1.2kW

IE-SOAR™ 1.2kW is part of our lightweight hydrogen fuel cell product range for UAV applications. Our zero-emission fuel cell modules provide a unique solution to extend flight times to drones presently constrained by the limitations of batteries.

Our air-cooled (AC) fuel cell technology runs on hydrogen and ambient air to produce clean DC power in a cost effective, robust and lightweight package. The modules have a higher energy to mass ratio than batteries, enabling UAVs to be refuelled in minutes.

By replacing the battery with a fuel cell power module, flight durations of over three times can be achieved.  The modules are scalable and can be integrated into your UAV platform without compromising payload placement, providing a natural solution for a wide range of industries using multi-rotor, fixed wing or proprietary designed UAVs.

  • Enable previously impossible applications – your business is no longer constrained by flight time.
  • Unlock BVLOS operations – BVLOS makes sense with the range provided by fuel cells.
  • Increase operational efficiency – spend more time in the air and achieve more.

Our IE-SOAR 1.2kW modules deliver zero-emission power and can work in parallel to reach higher power outputs.

Benefits

  • Direct battery replacement – 12S to 16S compatible, automatically follows load demand just like a battery.
  • Designed for safety and reliability – Single point failure tolerant and with built in power system redundancy.
  • Modular – Combine systems in parallel higher power systems.
