Sandia, Boeing Collaborate on Hydrogen Aircraft Project

Sandia National Laboratories and the Boeing Corporation will collaborate on a project to investigate hydrogen aircraft technology, specifically a hydrogen-powered fuel cell for providing emergency power to aircraft.

Fuel cells are touted as emission-free and more friendly to the environment and a popular way to deal with climate change if they burn hydrogen but hydrogen must be extracted from water trough electrolysis.

The work will be conducted under an existing umbrella Cooperative Research and Development Agreement (CRADA) signed in 2002.

Boeing is the largest aerospace company in the world and the United States’ leading exporter. It is NASA’s largest contractor and the largest manufacturer of commercial jetliners and military aircraft. Boeing is also home to the Boeing Phantom Works advanced R&D unit.

Sandia is a major Department of Energy lab. Sandia has major R&D responsibilities in national security, energy and environmental technologies, and economic competitiveness.
