Aeras Fog Company developed an electrostatic drone that disinfects stadiums in three hours

The drone uses electrostatic technology to quickly and safely sanitize large public spaces so that concerts and sporting events might become feasible in this new time of the coronavirus.

Wexford-based, Aeras Fog Company was started by entrepreneurs Justin Melanson, Eric Lloyd, and Nick Brucker. The company uses electrostatic technology so that the disinfectant is charged as it passes through the drone's nozzles. This method makes the disinfectant be better attracted to ground surfaces and stadium seats so that the areas are thoroughly coated, even underneath the seats, railings, and armrests.

Aeras says that the electrostatic drone can spray up to 20 acres per hour and that any sprayed area can be safely occupied three minutes after the disinfectant has been applied.

Recently, Aeras tested the electrostatic drone on Pittsburgh's Highmark Stadium.

“We're really excited about the peace of mind this technology has the potential to provide,” co-founder Eric Lloyd said in a press release according to KDKA2 CBS. “Everyone's wondering when they'll be able to attend a sporting event or live concert safely, or when it will be safe for children and staff to return to school. We believe that, by overcoming one of the major challenges associated with these activities, Aeras will help bring us all closer to sharing these experiences again.

By the fall, Aeras expects to have all certifications in place to start using the electrostatic drones in large outdoor and indoor spaces such as stadiums, concert venues, hockey rinks, playgrounds, and even schools.
