DEFENCE AND SECURITY
Hosted by Erik Wegman, CSIR Senior Engineer
The CSIR and the various Hydrogen South Africa (HySA) centres of competence are developing a hydrogen fuel cell powered version of a CSIR-developed long-endurance modular unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV). HySA is a national flagship programme initiated by the Department of Science and Innovation, aimed at developing South African intellectual property, knowledge, human resources, products, components and processes to support South African participation in international platforms using hydrogen and fuel cell technologies. The HySA participants are located at the universities of North West, Cape Town and the Western Cape.
