BSHARK, an expert on hydrogen-powered drone research, has partnered with MicroMultiCopter (MMC)-a manufacturer of the first hydrogen-powered drone HyDrone 1550. BSHARK released a new hydrogen-powered drone Narwhal 2. MMC provided production service for BSHARK. The new drone is an upgraded hydrogen quad-copter with LTE module and 30 km video transmission range and is available on September 16.
Upgraded core components
Based on aerial aluminum, the frame of Narwhal 2 is rain, dust and fireproof. As a drone fueled by hydrogen, Narwhal 2’s core components must be absolutely reliable. A metal-based PEM fuel cell is deployed instead of the graphite plate, which greatly accelerates the power density. For storage, Narwhal 2 is equipped with a standard type 4 hydrogen cylinder made of carbon fiber and covered with aluminum alloy with at least 500 filling time lifespans. Moreover, the valve has a built-in temperature sensor.
30 KM video transmitterand LTE module
“After dealing with the data transmission issues, we found that our drone is truly useful for long-distance missions,” the CEO of BSHARK Mr. Ling said. For this reason, Narwhal 2 has been developed with 30 km transmitters. Less than 0.25 seconds’ latency LTE module is also equipped to extend the operation range of UAVs, thus, 3G/ 4G, WIFI and other link methods are all available to link the drones and control stations.
Narwhal 2 is available for $6800.
A hydrogen fueling solution
Orca1, a mobile hydrogen fueling station with 99.999% output purity of hydrogen, is already on sale, making hydrogen fueling at home accessible.
Based on the sustainable use of the hydrogen fuel cell for the enhancement of flight endurance for drones, BSHARK is committed to pursuing harmony between flight pleasures and environmental and safety features. BSHARK aims to offer hydrogen fuel cell drones on the commercial market at affordable prices.
