Boeing Co (BA) is reportedly developing a hand-held wand emitting ultraviolet light to neutralize viruses and bacteria to disinfect flight deck surfaces and controls, along with surfaces throughout the cabin. The rising concerns by airline workers and passengers about the spread of COVID-19 have been pushing companies to look for new technologies for aircraft sanitization. The hand-held wand would help eliminate the need for alcohol-based disinfectants that can damage delicate electronic equipment on the aircraft.
Boeing is working on the technology with 13 different airlines and looking for licensing the technology and hiring third-parties to begin the manufacturing of wands for commercial use. It is also testing an anti-microbial coating for aircraft surfaces.
Dow 30 component Boeing (NYSE: BA) is the world’s largest aerospace company and leading manufacturer of commercial jetliners and defense, space and security systems. To learn more about Boeing (BA) and to track its ongoing progress please visit the Vista Partners Boeing (BA) Coverage Page.
