Aeronautica SDLE and Grupo Rías Launch Micro Drone For Disinfection With Ultraviolet (UVC)

Given the urgency of social responsibility to overcome the damage caused by the Covid-19 by joining efforts, the Spanish companies Aeronáutica SDLE and Grupo Rías are developing a micro drone emiting ultraviolet light (UVC) to disinfect surfaces and indoor and outdoor areas.

Quick and effective sterilization that ensures the elimination of the Covid-19 virus is essential to stop its spread worldwide, since in certain materials such as plastic the virus can remain active for up to 72 hours, as the latest medical studies have verified.

C-band ultraviolet light system (UVC) is highly effective, and applied from a micro drone of these characteristics, it manages to disinfect entire spaces in a few minutes, combating contagions and avoiding exposure to the virus from operators who would have to carry out the disinfection without the support of remote systems.

This micro drone manufactured for this purpose by Spanish engineers from Aeronautica SDLE and Grupo Rías, works with sensors that allow it to perform its function remotely inside buildings and avoid human exposure
to the risk of infection. The micro drone is prepared for ultraviolet radiation and will have  15 minutes endurance.

Virus removal by ultraviolet light is 99.99% effective on both surfaces and in the air, making it the most recommended technique by health authorities to prevent coronavirus in hospitals and all its rooms, public spaces, offices , industrial buildings, etc., disinfecting more effectively compared to manual cleaning and disinfecting spray solutions.

Ultraviolet light works by deactivating the DNA of pathogens, which guarantees that disinfected spaces can be occupied immediately after
cleaning, without any exposure to the virus or to any product that is aggressive for health or the environment.

Robots do not replace people, but they are capable of performing tasks that a person could not safely do, complementing human endeavors and playing a notable role in almost all aspects of crisis management.
