Kill coronavirus with drones made in Syracuse to bring sports back

DJI has used drones successfully in to help disinfect public areas up to 50 times faster than could be done manually. Now Patrick Walsh, CEO of EagleHawk in Syracuse, NY wants to kill the coronavirus with drones in sporting arenas here in the U.S.

Syracuse-made drones to kill coronavirus

Amanda China writes for CNY Central that:

EagleHawk, a company based in Syracuse and Buffalo, uses drones to inspect large facilities like sports arenas.

Now, the CEO wants to use those drones to bring sports back.

EagleHawk developed disinfecting drones that can fly over an arena, quickly spraying down seats.

“Doing it with a drone – having the drone carry the spray is just much more efficient, so we can cover large sections of seats very quickly,” said Walsh.

These drones have the capacity to do pretty much any large scale facility – football stadiums, arenas, ballparks, etc.

“Plus, it's much safer because now you don't have crews carrying heavy backpacks full of liquid, not being outfitted in PPE, not being directly exposed to chemical,” said Walsh.

The team at EagleHawk has been in early discussions with the Syracuse Crunch.

Using the drones and disinfecting the team's arena would take less than two hours.
