General Atomics' electromagnetic systems business has secured a contract of undisclosed value from the U.S. Army to deliver a hydrogen generation system that will help refuel hydrogen vehicles in deployment.

Scope of work will also cover the design, fabrication and assessment of a prototype mobile system that will work to generate high-pressure hydrogen, the company said Thursday.

The planned system will yield hydrogen through a reaction between a dry aluminum alloy and water and will utilize local sources of water.

“With a battlefield-based hydrogen fueling station, the Army can improve vehicle range, improve efficiency, and reduce dependency on oil and the logistical burden that is associated with it,“ said Scott Forney, president of General Atomics' electromagnetic systems business.
