The Transport Research and Innovation Grant programme announced that Stratospheric Platforms Ltd, along with 14 other successful applicants, has been selected to drive the governments initiative in supporting Zero Emission Hydrogen Technology for commercial aviation. See link below for full details:


“Working with Warwick FIRE, SPL proposes to develop a conceptual analytical tool for specifying the size and contents of airfield safety zones on the runway, taxiway and apron areas, needed for the operation of liquid hydrogen-powered aircraft. SPL will use its High Altitude Remotely Piloted aircraft, carrying up to 1,200kg of liquid hydrogen, as a study aircraft to develop the tool. The resulting tool will also examine the spread of both liquid and gaseous hydrogen in the event of a controlled or uncontrolled vent, leak or spillage.” UK Department for Transport
