Following Boeing and Falck Schmidt’s recent signing of a Memorandum of Understanding, Boeing is investigating fuel cells produced by Falck Schmidt to determine potential use in Boeing products. Boeing is considering using the cells in projects related to renewable energy power systems for the military.
The recent Memorandum of Understanding also pointed to possibilities for Boeing to use Falck Schmidt materials and components in rotorcraft programs under the Integrated Defense Systems sector. Tom Bell, VP of Business Development, said “Falck Schmidt is a key player in the Danish defense industry, providing proven power-supply solutions and composite materials to ground forces around the world. As they adapt their technologies for aerospace, we see natural links to Boeing’s current research and development activities.”
