To fight Covid 19 pandemic, India's Defence Research and Development Organisation (DRDO) has developed an equipment titled UV Blaster. This is an Ultra Violet (UV) Disinfection Tower used for rapid and chemical free disinfection of high infection prone areas. 

The UV Blaster is useful for high tech surfaces like electronic equipment, computers and other gadgets in laboratories and offices that are not suitable for disinfection with chemical methods. The product is also effective for areas with large flow of people such as airports, shopping malls, metros, hotels, factories, offices, etc.

This UV based area sanitiser has been designed and developed by the Laser Science & Technology Centre (LASTEC), one of the cluster laboratories of DRDO with the help of M/s New Age Instruments and Materials Private Limited, Gurugram.

The UV based area sanitiser may be used by remote operation through laptop/mobile phone using wifi link. The equipment has six lamps each with 43 watts of UV-C power at 254 nm wavelength for 360 degree illumination. For a room of about 12 x 12 feet dimension, the disinfection time is about 10 minutes and 30 minutes for 400 square feet area by positioning the equipment at different places within the room.

This sanitiser switches off on accidental opening of room or human intervention. One more salient safety feature of the product is the key to arm operation.
