SAE 2014 Aerospace Systems and Technology Conference

Technical Session Schedule

Thursday, September 25

Power Systems - Fuel Cell Systems
(Session Code: ASTC203)

Room Regency G  4:00 p.m.

This session will cover the development and integration of fuel cell power system technologies for use in tomorrow's unmanned air vehicles (UAVs). UAVs come in a range of sizes and are designed to perform a large variety of missions. The addition of advanced payloads are fueling a need for increased electrical power. The need for increased persistence is evident as UAV mission roles expand. However, design constraints on the electrical power systems are as unique as the aircraft powered by them.

Organizers - Joseph S. Breit, Boeing; John Fifield, Astronics AES; Michael Anthony Rottmayer, Air Force Research Lab.
Chairpersons - Michael Anthony Rottmayer, Air Force Research Lab.
