Suntuity AirWorks, the drone and UAV services division of the Suntuity Group of companies, is mobilizing their drone equipment and training personnel to help towns and cities combat the proliferation of the COVID-19 coronavirus.
By leveraging their DJI Enterprise level Matrice and Agras drones, Suntuity AirWorks is mobilizing their drone equipment and services divisions for the explicit purpose of helping cities and first responders use drones to help flatten the curve of the COVID-19 pandemic by reducing contamination in high risk public areas. Through drone equipment procurement, personnel training and ongoing drone support, Suntuity AirWorks is uniquely positioned to train city officials and drone pilots on the use of drones to fight contagions like the coronavirus.
Suntuity AirWorks recently delivered enterprise-level drones to Florida Davie County officials in order to help update their services with drone technologies, and has positioned itself to help more towns and cities utilize aerial spraying technologies during this crisis. The goal is to ensure cities can enable their hospitals and public safety workers with drone technologies that can help analyze, sanitize, and mitigate infection risk in high-exposure public areas.
Internationally, drones are being utilized across Asia and Europe to monitor crowd temperatures, deliver necessary medical supplies and sanitize public exposure areas with targeted spraying without additional exposure to public safety workers. Suntutiy AirWorks can now leverage these same applications in the US.
Gordon Dowrey, Director of Operations and Service Delivery at Suntuity AirWorks said, “We are optimistic that the US will learn from other countries and leverage drones to combat COVID-19 with the same efficiency and exposure mitigation that other countries are seeing. Drone capabilities have grown exponentially over the years and now is the time to start taking advantage of what drones can really do ─ whether it’s adjusting crop-spraying drones to spray targeted sanitizing agents, to using thermal infrared imaging capable drones that can pinpoint skin temperatures in crowds of hundreds of people, to outfitting drones with two way speaker systems to help law enforcement monitor and direct crowds. Suntuity AirWorks is ready to do its part to help cities and counties combat the coronavirus with the most advanced technologies on the market.”
Furthermore, Suntuity University’s AirWorks Academy continues to train police and fire departments, emergency healthcare personnel and city officials both in how to use drones and also how to incorporate them into their already existing processes and protocols.
