Hydrogen Fuel Cell Technology

Hydrogen Fuel Cell Technology – How it works

A fuel cell is an eco-friendly hydrogen generation technology that produces electricity through a chemical reaction involving hydrogen and oxygen. When supplied into the fuel cell, hydrogen is split into a positive hydrogen ion and an electron at the hydrogen reaction pole. Upon passing the electrolyte membrane, the positive hydrogen ion meets oxygen at the oxygen reaction pole and generates water and electricity. With this, you can power a drone in the case of Doosan Innovation Mobility (DMI) for up to 2 hours. Since oxygen can easily be obtained from the atmosphere, mounting the fuel cell power pack with DMI‘s hydrogen tank is all you need to operate a drone.


The hydrogen fuel cell is the heart of a fuel cell power system. Generating electricity in the form of direct current (DC) from electrochemical reactions that take place in the fuel cell. The amount of power produced by a fuel cell depends upon several factors, such as fuel cell type, cell size, the temperature at which it operates, and the pressure of the gases supplied to the cell all factors that have been carefully analysed, tested and developed by DMIs engineers ensuring their hydrogen fuel cell technology is not only stable but ultimately it is safe.

Is Hydrogen Dangerous?

Hydrogen is a gas that already exists in the atmosphere together with nitrogen and oxygen. Since hydrogen is a very light gas, it does not stay in one location after being emitted during the use of fuel cells but spreads and disappears into the air quickly.
The safety accident rate of hydrogen is lower than that of batteries, and most hydrogen-related accidents have been caused due to human error such as carelessness when handling hydrogen tanks and the failure to inspect the facility.

Doosan Mobility Innovation (DMI) Partners with C3 Drones and Robotics

DMI signs an official contract with C3 Drones and Robotics to actively expand to the Australian market

Doosan Mobility Innovation (DMI) has partnered with an Australian company C3 Drones and Robotics for the distribution and development of UAV solutions in Australia and New Zealand. The official partnership was made in June this year with both parties expecting to expand the use of hydrogen fuel cell drone operations in Oceania.

C3 means command, control and communication, the full package required for remotely operated aircraft and robotics. At C3 Drones and Robotics we work directly with the biggest names in the RPAS and robotics industries, software developers, regulatory consultation teams and the world’s various Federal Aviation Authorities to deliver an off-the-shelf package for remote operations.

Doosan Mobility Innovation is focusing on the mobile application of hydrogen fuel cell technology, which is projected to provide diverse industrial solutions and contribute to public safety with green technology. DMI’s hydrogen fuel cell multi-copter can fly for up to 2 hours, with its remote vertical take-off and landing system. DMI has conducted long-range delivery flights with 72km as the longest record in the US Virgin Islands with blood sample delivery done with the Department of Health.

With such long-endurance hydrogen fuel cell drones, DMI and C3 Drones and Robotics will be able to expand the usage of not only drones but also hydrogen in Australia and New Zealand.

Advantages of Hydrogen Fuel Cell Drones

Hydrogen can overcome the power limits of standard lithium-ion batteries, enabling drones’ longer endurance. It is expected that the growing demand for special-purpose hydrogen drones in use cases such as surveillance and survey of long linear assets will proliferate the technology.

Advantages of the Doosan hydrogen fuel cell drone include:-

  • 2 hours plus of flight time
  • Long range allowing for new unthought-of use cases
  • Safe systems and easy hydrogen supply solutions
  • BVLOS capable with autonomous flight
