first australian pilotless VTOL with hydrogen-electric propulsion to set off soon
H3 Dynamics and Carbonix unite
The company made its first flight with the decentralized hydrogen concept in a small aircraft at an airfield near Paris earlier this year.
According to the company, the 25-kilo test aircraft can reach a range of up to 900 km with liquid hydrogen or 350 km with compressed hydrogen.
The company’s patented hydrogen-electric propulsion technology liberates the main fuselage, making room for bigger sensors or more cargo for autonomous delivery covering long distances.
Hydrogen propulsion for VTOL
The special nacelle system frees up fuselage volume for aerial deliveries, opening up medical deliveries to remote communities in Australia.
The collaboration comes through as the newly announced partnership between H3 Dynamics and Carbonix aligns with Australia’s hydrogen and decarbonization plans.
Carbonix is changing the engine of its aircraft and helicopters, as well as battery or combustion engine drones, into locally-produced hydrogen.
