TU Vienna Space Team - Mission Across Austria

The mission to fly through Austria from border to border autonomously with a hydrogen-powered aircraft is intended to demonstrate important future technologies for aviation.

With its high energy density, hydrogen represents a realistic solution for the green aviation of the future, in addition to synthetic liquid fuels and the hoped-for potential of battery technology. BVLOS ("Beyond Visual Line Of Sight") operation of autonomous aircraft opens up a wide range of possibilities for search and rescue, logistics, urban transport and connectivity of remote regions.

In this context, the TU Vienna Space Team aims to advance the topics of hydrogen and BVLOS in aviation in close cooperation with TU Vienna and with the support of government, authorities and industry.
