AlumiFuel Power (API) and its portable power partner and prime contractor, US-based Ingenium Technologies, have developed new fuel source for unmanned undersea vehicles (UUVs).

The new system will generate hydrogen for fueling UUVs using its proprietary AlumiFuel powders.

Earlier, the Ingenium-API team was awarded a US Navy R&D contract for a novel new hydrogen fuel delivery system to power future fuel cell driven UUVs, with Ingenium as the prime contractor.

The technology embodied in the Ingenium-API team is well suited for two new-start multi-million dollar programs that the Navy intends to award this year as it seeks new operational UUV power sources other than batteries.

US-based API, a subsidiary of AlumiFuel Power Corp, is an early production stage alternative energy company.
