Israel Aerospace Industries (IAI) Tests UV Light Cleaning System to Sterilize Planes from COVID-19

Posted by in categories: biotech/medical, robotics/AI

UV light kills viruses in air-borne droplets and of the three types of ultraviolet light – UV-A, UV-B and UV-C – UV-C is the most damaging.

UV-C can damage the nucleic acids within an organism and prevent it from replicating. Its use as a disinfectant is fairly common in hospital and laboratory settings.

In Israel, IAI engineers have been working on a system that can work autonomously and automatically in a plane, once given a plan of the aircraft or any other large space.
