EnergyOr Technologies Inc., a Montreal, Quebec-based developer of advanced polymer electrolyte membrane fuel cell systems, recently demonstrated what it says is the world's longest multi-rotor unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) flight: 3 hours, 43 minutes and 48 seconds.
According to the company, the demonstration was performed to emphasize the potential of EnergyOr's fuel cell systems to dramatically increase multi-rotor UAV flight endurance and thereby enable new applications for this type of aircraft.
EnergyOr says this time improves upon its previous world record of 2 hours, 12 minutes and 46 seconds in March.
“We are proud to maintain our position as the first company to apply hydrogen fuel cell systems to multi-rotor UAV applications and to have achieved the world's longest multi-rotor flights ever recorded,” says Michael Bitton, CEO of EnergyOr.
