Inside Track: Quantum supporting ISIS
Quantum Fuel Systems Technologies Worldwide, Inc. (Nasdaq: QTWW), today announced that it has been awarded a contract for expanded support of Lockheed Martin’s Space Systems’ development of ISIS (Integrated Sensor is the Structure) airship powered by a Regenerative Fuel Cell (RFC). Quantum will supply critical hydrogen metering systems in conjunction with the hydrogen and oxygen storage systems that it is currently supplying to Lockheed Martin.
The ISIS uses solar rays during daylight hours to generate renewable electricity that electrolyzes water to generate hydrogen and oxygen to run the RFC at night. Quantum has worked closely with Lockheed Martin to develop one of the lightest advanced carbon fiber composite hydrogen storage vessels in the world for this application. Quantum will expand the scope of the program by developing precision fuel metering devices that are compatible with a wide array of environmental conditions.
