INCREASING THE RANGE OF ELECTRIC FLIGHT

HES started powering experimental unmanned hydrogen-electric aircraft as early as 2005-2006.

 

Its main lab was first established in Singapore in 2009, with a goal to solve hydrogen infrastructure for unmanned drone applications and other weight sensitive applications. Its first prototypes were released in 2010 for an enclosed all inclusive battery replacement product for small fixed-wing UAVs.

14 YEARS OF HYDROGEN FLIGHT R&D

OUR JOURNEY & ORIGINS

HES was the hydrogen aerial mobility lab started by Horizon Fuel Cell Technologies in 2009 in Singapore. In 2015 it was later acquired by H3 Dynamics as part of an MBO led by Horizon and HES founder, Taras Wankewycz. 

After 10 years of hydrogen on demand storage technology development, HES started shifting away from customised advanced fuel cell propulsion development towards integrated flying platform development.

In 2017, HES began development of a hexacopter hydrogen drone, named HYCOPTER which has launched in July 2019. It has also moved its product development operations from Singapore to Austin, Texas.

The company filed patents for hydrogen electric passenger aviation systems both as propulsion and ground refuelling systems - with plans to enable a first hydrogen-electric passenger flight platform by 2025.
