Hydrogen fuel cell design company, whose "turbo air-cooled" design radically boosts the power density and lifespan of the fuel cell compared to traditional designs. Targeted particularly for use in aviation in the eVTOL market.
HyPoint's aviation-targeted fuel cells were already promising three times the power of a regular fuel cell by weight, but thanks to a new proton-conductive membrane developed in partnership with BASF, their power density is set to jump by another 50 percent.
Piasecki's PA-890 slowed-rotor compound helicopter will be a remarkable enough aircraft in its own right – but the company is also working with HyPoint to develop a long-range, powerful hydrogen powertrain to sell to other eVTOL manufacturers.
Israeli VTOL air taxi developer Urban Aeronautics has announced it's partnering with HyPoint to develop a long range, hydrogen fuel cell-powered, emissions-free version of its remarkable CityHawk aircraft, based on the military Cormorant design.
