Kill coronavirus with drones made in Syracuse to bring sports back

DJI has used drones successfully in to help disinfect public areas up to [mks_highlight color=”#ffff00″]50 times faster[/mks_highlight] than could be done manually.

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 [mks_highlight color=”#ffff00″]more efficient[/mks_highlight], 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 [mks_highlight color=”#ffff00″]much safer[/mks_highlight] 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 [mks_highlight color=”#ffff00″]less than two hours[/mks_highlight].
