Hydrogen on Demand is Military Goal

Technology development company Millennium Cell was awarded a subcontract to develop hydrogen storage systems for the U.S. Department of Defense (DoD). The prime contractor is Pennsylvania-based Concurrent Technologies Corporation (CTC), which operates the DoD’s Fuel Cell Test and Evaluation Center (FCTec) in Johnstown, Pennsylvania. Millennium Cell’s contract is part of first-year activities under the DoD contract to develop Common Core Power Production technology for the Air Force’s Advanced Alternate Power Technology Transformation Office. The program is based on utilizing fuel cell systems as interchangeable power sources for military equipment, and Millennium will develop and provide Hydrogen on Demand (HOD) system design and key components. The five 5 kW HOD system will be capable of providing hydrogen for refueling mobile devices and powering stationary apparatus, among other military applications.
