The U.S. Navy’s Benchmarking and Best Practices Center of Excellence (B2PCOE) Manufacturing Fuel Cell Manhattan Project (MFCMP) utilized experts from industry, government, and academia, in conjunction with Montana Tech of The University of Montana (MTT) to determine the major fuel cell manufacturing cost drivers, gaps, and best practices. The result provides a broad and detailed account of the issues associated with developing cost effective fuel cell systems for warfighter platforms. These manufacturing issues are identified in the MFCMP book, along with a roadmap to address the cost drivers.
