Event 38 Unmanned Systems, a leading manufacturer of American-made mapping drones, announces the successful completion of a demo flight of the E450, a drone powered by a hydrogen fuel cell on Monday, June 13, at the Kent State University airport.

The demo flight was the culmination of a multi-year project that started in 2020 and was sponsored by the Ohio Federal Research Network (OFRN), a program managed by Parallax Advanced Research. Event 38 partnered with other experts at Kent State University, Case Western Reserve University, the University of Dayton, and Wright State University to explore the possibility of powering drones with fuel cells. The fuel cell used for the project was purchased from Ballard Unmanned Systems, which was acquired by Honeywell in October of 2020.
