The Hornet made what is believed to be the world’s first successful flight, on March 21, 2003, of a Micro Air Vehicle (MAV) powered entirely by a hydrogen fuel cell. The Hornet was developed under a DARPA sponsored research contract to explore innovative propulsion and structural concepts for unmanned vehicles of this type. The innovative concepts developed for Hornet may enable multi-hour flight of MAV sized vehicles in the future.
