IE-SOAR fuel cells replace your battery and unlock long endurance flight


IE-SOAR™ 800 is Intelligent Energy’s fuel cell module optimised for VTOL and fixed wing applications. Using our lightweight fuel cell technology and a modular structure, our 800W module offers greater flexibility to the end user and extends time in the air.

  • 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.
  • IE-SOAR fuel cell modules for UAVs enable your fleet to fly significantly longer.

Our fuel cells run on hydrogen and ambient air to produce clean DC power in a simple, cost effective, robust and lightweight package. They have a higher energy to mass ratio than battery systems and can be refuelled in minutes.
