Neah Power Partners With Silent Falcon to Integrate Fuel Cells Into Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAV)

Formira® Hydrogen-on-Demand Technology Expected to Increase Mission Endurance and Enable Heavier Payloads; Jointly Published White Paper Available on Website

BOTHELL, WA–(Oct 15, 2014) – Neah Power Systems, Inc. (OTCQB: NPWZ) will be partnering with Silent Falcon™ UAS Technologies (‘Silent Falcon’) to integrate the formic acid reformer (Formira™) based fuel cell technology into the Silent Falcon UAV. A jointly published white paper is available at www.neahpower.com and at www.silentfalconuas.com. The fuel cell could significantly increase the mission endurance by between two times to three times the current duration, as well as enable heavier payloads. Formic acid is a safe, energy dense fuel, allowing easy handling, distribution, and refueling in remote locations worldwide, unlike compressed hydrogen.

The patent pending Silent Falcon is a solar/electric, all composite, modular small Unmanned Aircraft System (sUAS) designed for commercial, public safety, and military applications. With Silent Falcon’s solar electric propulsion system, rugged composite structure, and three interchangeable wing configurations, it is the first sUAS capable of meeting long range and long endurance mission profiles.

“We are thrilled to be partnering with Silent Falcon UAS Technologies. We are looking forward to this joint development of extending the mission endurance for their UAS,” said Chris D’Couto, president and CEO of Neah Power Systems, Inc. “The Formira technology uses a liquid fuel, and is a very attractive energy option as it does not have the low energy density, safety and handling challenges of compressed hydrogen.”

John W. Brown, Silent Falcon CEO said, “I believe the biggest advantage to having a Neah fuel cell on board Silent Falcon will not only be the extra endurance, but the ability to carry heavier and power hungry payloads. This is already one of our most important competitive differentiators and is what is attracting lots of folks to our products. Neah will also give us the ability to offer extended endurance at night, which is huge from our perspective. We look forward to integrating this technology into our UAV for a demonstrable performance advantage and the ability to serve an even wider range of markets and applications.”

Neah Power’s BuzzBar Suite(R) Launch Empowers African Classrooms

Posted by AGORACOM-JC at 6:00 AM on Tuesday, September 16th, 2014

Indiegogo Campaign Demonstrates Power to “Go Anywhere. Take Charge.”

BOTHELL, WA, Sep 16, 2014 — Neah Power Systems Inc. (OTCBB: NPWZ) (‘Neah’), an innovator and supplier of cutting-edge power solutions for the military, transportation and portable electronics industries, is proud to launch their Indiegogo campaign for its BuzzBar Suite and a partnership to bring computing power to rural African classrooms using the recently released BuzzBar(R) Suite of products. The BuzzBar(R) is a new groundbreaking product that enables off-the-grid recharging of mobile consumer electronics using solar, grid, or proprietary fuel cell technology. If you frequently travel or go “off-grid” for any length of time, you will need a power source for your critical electronics. The BuzzBar Suite provides a simple power solution for anyone who needs “power to go.” This BuzzBar Suite can also be a life-saving product in an emergency.

Neah is partnering with the Asante Africa Foundation, a not-for-profit 503(c) corporation deploying tablet computers into remote African classrooms through their “Classroom in a Box” program, which will provide rich teaching material and expose children to content they would otherwise not have access to. Schools in remote villages are far from the grid and therefore require alternative power solutions. For every 25 BuzzBar Suite units sold, Neah Power will donate one BuzzBar Suite to Asante Africa Foundation.

“We believe there is a strong demand for a simple device that can enable people to go farther and travel longer with their vital electronics. There is nothing quite like the BuzzBar Suite,” said Dr. Chris D’Couto, CEO of Neah Power Systems. “We are eager to showcase the product’s power and are excited to bring the potential of Indiegogo(R) to this effort. Partnering with Asante Africa Foundation allows us to do good and further a very worthy cause.”

“We are pleased to partner with Neah Power Systems to deploy these products and enable a 21st Century learning experience to the children in Africa,” said Erna Grasz, CEO of Asante Africa Foundation. Be sure to visit http://igg.me/at/buzzbar to learn more about Neah Power’s campaign and how they are contributing to the Asante Africa Foundation. More information about Asante Africa Foundation’s Technology in the Classroom initiatives can be found at http://www.asanteafrica.org/technology/.

Different perks reap different acknowledgment gifts. For example, a donation of $40 will provide the benefactor with a t-shirt, and a donation will be made to Asante Africa Foundation. A donation of $149 will provide you with the BuzzBar(TM) Suite: a BuzzBar, a BuzzSol and a BuzzBat. Other perks provide other product combinations. The BuzzCell is expected to ship in Q4 2014. Visit the campaign on Indiegogo for a complete list of the perks offered.
