Aertos 120 UVC
The new Aertos® 120-UVC drone combines a proven industrial drone with verified UVC disinfection capabilities to reduce health risks for humans. The Aertos 120-UVC drone provides remote UVC disinfection capabilities for essential businesses in multiple areas:
• Healthcare facilities—patient rooms, hospital rooms, waiting areas
• Grocery stores—checkout spaces
• Warehouses—product handling areas
• Airplanes and Public Transit—seats, exposed surfaces
• Business common areas—restrooms, workrooms, breakroom surface areas
UVC is UltraViolet C-band, defined by energy with wavelengths of 100 to 280 NM, and naturally is absorbed by the earth’s atmosphere before reaching the surface. UVC energy is well characterized by its ability to kill various pathogens and broadly deployed on an industrial scale for disinfection. This is supported by lab and quality data continually collected around the world. This data also supports UVC at 265 NM ability to destroy a variety of bacteria and other pathogens, including lab results
for SARS-CoV-1. It has not been thoroughly evaluated for SARS-CoV-2 (COVID-19).
Furthermore, Digital Aerolus’ Aertos 120-UVC has not been evaluated or tested by the FDA, WHO, CDC, or any other body or laboratory to determine its effect on the SARS-CoV-2 virus that causes COVID-19. UVC’s well-understood mechanisms for sanitation is disrupting the RNA and DNA of the cells and molecules receiving the energy. This includes damage to human DNA when directly exposed, leading to an increased risk of cancer.
For example, various forms of welding emit UVC and require all humans to shielded from the energy via curtains, distance, welding masks, and the proper covering of all skin. The Aertos 120 UVC is intended for use remotely when humans are not in range of use, because of this cancer risk.
