As part of 2020, NASA Tipping Points Selections for funding Teledyne has been selected for funding.
Last week NASA named 14 U.S. companies set to collectively receive more than $370 million to produce and refine game-changing space technologies and one of those companies was Teledyne which was chosen to receive $2.8 million in funding to develop a hydrogen fuel cell system capable of operating for 10,000 hours.
- Teledyne Energy Systems of Hunt Valley, Maryland, $2.8 million
Advance a hydrogen electrical power system to enable a fuel cell with an operating lifetime of 10,000 hours. Teledyne will fly a test article of the water separator on a parabolic aircraft to characterize the effect of various gravities.
NASA’s Space Technology Mission Directorate (STMD) will negotiate with the companies to issue milestone-based firm-fixed-price contracts lasting for up to five years.
