Hey guys

While roaming the worldwide web i found this article . I've used the search function to look for any related topics and nothing came up!!!

so here it goes :

Horizon Energy Systems (booth 2828) is at the show to launch commercial sales of its Aeropak hydrogen fuel cell power system, designed to bring a 300% flight duration improvement to today's battery-operated 5-10kg class mini-unmanned air vehicles (UAV).
Israel Aerospace Industries (IAI) has provided a major shot in the arm for the project by announcing that it is adopting the Aeropak as a power system for its Bird Eye 650 unmanned air system. Without increasing take-off weight, the fuel cell enables the mini-UAS to achieve 6h flights, a more than two-fold improvement compared with flights powered by lithium batteries, says IAI

Seems this could bring out some mayor changes in the battlefield as in domestic use eventually. I believe this means they could also fit bigger payloads or maybe even a laser to take out incoming missiles.
