Lightweight cylinder for UAV hydrogen fuel cell

Lightweight, durable hydrogen cylinders for Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs)

AMS specialises in the production of durable, lightweight hydrogen cylinders for advanced UAVs and drones.
Working closely with pioneering companies from across the UK and Europe, we supply cylinders for advanced hydrogen fuel cell systems designed to enhance range and improve performance in the next generation of cutting edge commercial UAVs.

The result is a step-change in power to weight ratio, enabling the production of drones that can fly significantly further and carry heavier loads than today’s electric drones. In practice, using hydrogen can increase maximum flying times from 20-30 minutes to 3.5 hours.

Hydrogen cylinders for drones from AMS

With low weights and high capacity (300 Bar), AMS Type 3 carbon composite hydrogen cylinders for UAVs are the natural choice for drone manufacturers looking to develop larger, longer range drones for a full range of existing and potential applications, including:

  • Aerial photography
  • Surveillance and monitoring
  • Search and rescue
  • Cargo delivery

AMS hydrogen cylinders for drones are extremely durable and safe, with excellent impact and flame resistance. They can be supplied as NLL (Non-Limited Life) or with reduced 15 year life to save weight. Cylinders are certified for use worldwide, and are produced in line with a range of global standards and quality assurance accreditations including ISO 11119-2, UN-TPED Pi, DOT (USA) and TC (Canada).
