Hycopter drone can fly for 4 hours using Hydrogen

#drone #technologynews
These days we are seeing lot of developments in UAVs, i-e Drones. Various kinds of drones including the drones used for taking aerial photography are being introduced to the market continuously.
But, the biggest physical constraint on small drones is their power supply. As of now Batteries can hold little energy only. And  if we add more batteries to a drone, it will increase the weight of that drone, which will further increase the demand for energy to fly.
Currently a typical drone can only fly for a maximum of around 25 minutes per battery charge.

A new drone concept by a Singapore company  Horizon Unmanned Systems (HUS) seeks to overcome that limitation, by turning to an alternative power source: hydrogen fuel cells.
Known as the Hycopter, the fuel cell-powered drone is hoped to be capable of 4-hour flight times once completed.

In a clever design feature, the Hycopter stores 120 g   of hydrogen gas in its existing structural tubing without requiring any additional containers.
According to Horizon, that amount of hydrogen should provide the same amount of energy as 3 kg of lithium batteries.

The hydrogen gas  is converted into electricity by a lightweight lithium polymer hybrid fuel cell. Altogether, the complete drone should weigh a total of 5 kg  , and be capable of carrying a payload of up to 1 kg

Hydrogen fuel cells work by reacting hydrogen with oxygen.  

#HYCOPTER is the world’s first hydrogen fuel cell powered multi-rotor UAV. HYCOPTER is being readied for a record flight endurance of 4 hours, or 8 to 10 times the average flight duration of equivalent systems today.
 
Unlike any other rotorcraft, HYCOPTER makes use of its frame structure to store energy in the form of hydrogen, eliminating energy storage weight.
 
Because of this new technology, Aerial survey jobs will become materially cheaper and faster. And drone delivery over longer distances will become more feasible.

Another predicament!. 
 
Whining Samsung, MAN UP! you've been found guilty now PAY
Samsung Electronics Co. urged a U.S. appeals court to toss a $930 million verdict won by Apple Inc., saying the South Korean company didn’t copy the iPhone’s design and unique look and arguing that the damage award was too high.

What I will love to see.
 
They use real sunlight. 

Definitely going to take a stroll through this park in 2018...
New York continues to perpetuate it’s self-claimed tittle as “greatest city in the world’ with the construction of the worlds first underground park.

This is exactly what should have happened long time ago.

Love you Mario: kept us entertained for a while.
 
Mario finally loses it.

We search for hope.
 
Looking back at 2014. This year people searched for everything under the sun and beyond, from distant comets to tiny burritos. And they asked Google important questions like “Where do we come from?” and “Should I get married?”

Today we launched our annual #YearInSearch, a look back at the searches, questions and moments that defined 2014. 

Watch the film, explore the site and relive the year along the way. g.co/2014
