The H2 Clipper is the result of radically re-thinking lighter-than-air flight. Standing on the shoulders of early pioneers and yet with a focus firmly on the future, the Company has incorporated in the H2 Clipper key advances that have taken place over the last century in aeronautical design, stronger and lighter-weight materials, modern fabrication and mass production techniques, 3D printing, computer-based simulation and controls. H2 Clipper has used this approach since inception to eliminate problems and minimize risk factors, and to achieve previously unattainable goals for safety, speed and efficiency.
The H2 Clipper design incorporates a number of patented and patent-pending innovations that result in significant improvements including reduced drag and better propulsion, greater structural integrity, optimal use of solar power and 100% green hydrogen for lift and energy storage, decreased weight and increased payload, all of which help to assure safe, reliable and cost-effective commercial operation. The functional capabilities made possible through these technical innovations support a wide range of uses across multiple industries.
Of the many future uses that exist for the H2 Clipper, the Company is presently focusing on the following four Use Cases:
