FCair™  UAV Power Systems - H2 FUEL CELL

BFD Systems is proud to offer the FCAir™ fuel cell system from Ballard Unmanned Systems. The same power system that is used in our H2-6 drone is now available for custom integration on UAVs or other power systems. This is a complete turnkey solution for providing 600 - 1200 watts of power from clean, readily available Hydrogen gas. The only byproduct of the electrical generation is H20.

Commercial UAV operators struggle with limited mission duration, range, reliability, and noise. They are frustrated managing, charging, and transporting batteries; and by the cost of maintaining small engines. FCair™  Fuel Cell Power Systems provide up to 3 times more run-time than the best batteries and 5 times the reliability of small engines - and they run on clean hydrogen gas. All of this means you get:

  • Faster refueling for less downtime

  • No battery or cable jumble

  • Better cold weather endurance

  • Better high altitude performance

  • Quiet operation
