Instead of using traditional combustion engines, these will be replaced with H3 Dynamics hydrogen propulsion system, meaning HyLight’s next wave of airships will offer long-range zero-emission flight.
The system has been made possible due to H3’s aerospace-grade hydrogen fuel cells, labelled the ‘smallest and lightest in the world.’
H3 developed a fully integrated hydrogen-electric propulsion aircraft nacelle earlier this year, which could make hydrogen-powered flights a possibility.
The creation distributes multiple integrated powertrains incorporating batteries, fuel cells, hydrogen storage and smaller electric motors across the wings, replacing a single centralised hydrogen fuel cell system.
Carbonix also teamed up with H3 Dynamics recently, to begin the development of a hydrogen-electric UAS to align with Australia’s decarbonisation plans.
The aircraft is planned to have a range of up to 900km on liquid hydrogen fuel and 350km on compressed hydrogen, being able to carry 5kg of cargo.
