What information is available on a given developmental hydrogen-on-demand (HOD) fuel cell technology, would it be suitable for use in operational environments, and what alternative technologies exist?

DSIAC was able to procure the U.S. Patent for the given HOD fuel cell technology in question and then consolidated the information for the inquirer. A DSIAC subject matter expert then assess the potential benefits, issues and technology maturity of the technology and provided a list of commercial off-the-shelf (COTS) hydrogen fuel cell technologies that would likely provide equivalent or better benefits.
