General Atomics Electromagnetic Systems (GA-EMS) has been awarded a contract from the US Army Contracting Command for a high-pressure hydrogen generation system to support refueling of hydrogen vehicles in the field. Under the two-year contract, GA-EMS will develop, fabricate, and demonstrate a hydrogen on-demand platform using the companys proprietary aluminum alloy hydrogen producing technology
Zunum Aero has selected Safran Helicopter Engines for its hybrid-to-electric commercial aircraft, which will be available in the early 2020s. Safran Helicopter Engines will provide a new generation engine turbine to drive the Zunum ZA10s electrical generator
The Pentagon has awarded a $480 million worth US Air Force contract to Lockheed Martin for second hypersonic weapon prototype known as Air-Launched Rapid Response Weapon (ARRW) or “Arrow”. Under a not-to-exceed $480,000,000 undefinitized contract, Lockheed Martin will provide “ARRW critical design review and test and production readiness support”, the Department of defense announced Monday
A Chinese military scientist has developed a Full Electric Propulsion (FEP) for Chinas next-generation warships, including aircraft carriers and destroyers. This means the power system for China's new warships will become more intelligent and can supply more power to the weapons system
Russias Energia Rocket and Space Corporation will test the new electric propulsion rocket engine operating on iodine this month end, TASS reports quoting the companys press office as saying. "The developers will hold the ground tests of the propulsion unit already in late June," project co-head and design engineer Pavel Shcherbina said
The Iranian Navy has unveiled a range of new military equipment that includes oxygen-less torpedo fuel, training warship, electronic jammer and Nano material to cover surface of the vessels. Otto fuel is a home-grown fuel that is combustible in the absence of oxygen, enabling the underwater propulsion of torpedoes
The PIPAA (Fuel Cells for Aerospace Applications) project aims to develop and qualify a fuel cell system for the electrical power supply of aircraft systems, particularly electric ground taxiing solutions, thus drastically reducing polluting emissions in airports. PIPAA aims to develop an autonomous on-board electrical power generation system for medium-haul aircraft and business jets, and to validate the entire hydrogen-power distribution and fueling chain on an airport platform
Does fuel cell technology has the potential to replace gasoline-based engines to drive armoured vehicles and naval vessels. General Motors (GM) and Honda on 30 January announced a Fuel Cell System Manufacturing (FCSM) joint venture to mass produce hydrogen fuel cell systems for each company's future offerings
Honeywells SmartRunway and SmartLanding system has received industry approval from the European Aviation Safety Agency for use on the Boeing 737 Next Generation airliner. The Boeings airliner is first aircraft approved to operate this technology in Europe
Boeing has developed a fuel cell using a technology called a “reversible solid oxide fuel cell” to store energy from renewable resources such as wind and solar, producing zero-emissions electricity. The fuel cell energy storage system has been delivered to the U
Indian Institute of Science has bagged a research and development contract on Solar Powered Micro-grid by US military. The contract worth US $52,900 was awarded by US Pacific Air Forces, Yokota Air Base in Japan to develop solar powered micro-grid and super capacitor energy storage system, Hindustan Times news daily reported Thursday
Orbital ATK has won a Research and Technologies for Aerospace Propulsion Systems 2 (RTAPS2) contract from NASA to provide advanced space propulsion system technologies.
