Using Hydrogen to revolutionize UAVs
LEVITUM is developing a hydrogen powered eVTOL drone capable of flying over 300 km without refueling. The team achieves this by using state-of-the-art fuel cell systems and modern Type IV pressure tanks. This way, the Prototype “Mercurius” will outperform any other commercial drone. The idea was part of the top three winning teams of the NASA-DLR Designchallenge 2020 and will be part of the top ten pitching ideas of the TUM IdeAward 2020.
LEVITUM is a team of more than 20 highly motivated Master and Bachelor students of the faculties of Mechanical Engineering, Aerospace, the TUM School of Management, Electrical Engineering and the Munich School of Engineering.
