Congresswoman Louise Slaughter has announced a $1.6 million grant for a joint program between RIT and Delphi Inc. that is developing fuel cell technology for U.S. Department of Defense power and transportation systems.

Fuel cells can provide quiet, flexible and fuel-efficient operation that makes them suitable for use in “stealth” vehicles or quiet portable power systems. The work being conducted by Delphi and RIT’s Center for Integrated Manufacturing Studies will aim to improve fuel cell reliability, durability and cost while also enabling mass production and enhancing ultimate commercialization for additional civilian uses.
