Nissan, 44 percent owned by Renault SA of France, also demonstrated Wednesday its latest fuel cell stack as it aims to introduce a new fuel cell vehicle with a more advanced power source than the one currently used in its X-Trail fuel cell car.
However, almost at once it acquired Advanced Power Sources, a UK research and development company based at Lough borough University that had been working on the early prototyping of fuel cell products and pre-commercial development of its proprietary fuel cell technology since 1995.
Richard Chandler, who heads the directorate, said the three overarching needs are in advanced power sources, command, control, computers and intelligence and "signature management," which is shorthand for keeping clandestine operators and their equipment hidden from the enemy.
At present, lithium batteries dominate the field of advanced power sources and have almost entirely replaced their bulkier and less energetic counterparts such as nickel-cadmium and nickel-metalhydride batteries; especially in portable electronic devices.
The technology will be applied to vehicles with conventional powertrains, as well as vehicles with advanced power sources, like hybrid electric, fuel cell and advanced battery electric propulsion.

Lithium Power develops and manufactures advanced power sources, particularly rechargeable lithium batteries and high-energy capacitors.
Each competitor in the market has a slightly different focus (whether it is a different fuel or design of cartridge), but the common objective is to secure a viable niche market to provide an advanced power source.
