Power Source: Operational feasibility of hydrogen combustion engines

Hydrogen combustion involves burning hydrogen in an engine to produce thrust. Hydrogen combustion method is reminiscent of traditional jet engines but uses hydrogen as a fuel source instead of kerosene or gas. The appeal of hydrogen combustion lies in its ability to integrate with existing aircraft engine designs, potentially reducing the time and cost associated with the deployment of hydrogen technologies in the aviation sector. Hydrogen fuel cells generate electricity through a chemical reaction between oxygen and hydrogen, releasing water as a byproduct. Hydrogen fuel cells method offers a clean alternative for powering aircraft, especially for shorter regional flights due to current energy density and storage limitations compared to liquid fuels.

Platform: Rising use of hydrogen-powered UAVs for surveillance purpose

Air Taxis represent a revolutionary approach to urban mobility, aiming to alleviate traffic congestion by using hydrogen-powered vertical takeoff and landing (VTOL) vehicles. The need for Air Taxis emerges from the growing demand for efficient, eco-friendly urban transportation solutions. Hydrogen-powered business jets target the premium segment of the aviation market, offering an eco-friendly alternative to conventional fuel sources without compromising on luxury and performance. Hydrogen-powered UAVs are gaining traction for their extended flight times compared to battery-powered drones, making them ideal for surveillance, inspection, and logistics.
