“Centre for Fire Explosive & Environment Safety (CFEES), Delhi, using its expertise in mist technology for fire suppression, has developed automatic mist-based sanitizer dispensing unit,” it said.

It is a contactless sanitiser dispenser which sprays alcohol-based hand rub sanitiser solution for sanitisation of hands while entering the buildings or office complexes, among other places. It is based on water mist aerator technology, which was developed for water conservation, the DRDO said.

The unit operates without contact and is activated through an ultrasonic sensor.

It is a very compact unit and its bulk fill option makes it economical and long-lasting product. It is easy to install as a wall-mountable system or on a platform. As an indication of operation an LED illuminates the spray, it added.

The unit was manufactured with the help of Riot Labz Pvt Ltd, Noida, and one unit has been installed at DRDO Bhawan.

The unit can be used for sanitization of hands at entry and exit to hospitals, malls, office buildings, residential buildings, airports, metro stations, railway stations, bus stations, and critical installations.

The product is also expected to be very useful at entry and exit points at isolation and quarantine centers, the DRDO said.

Besides, the Defence Institute of Physiology & Allied Sciences (DIPAS) and Institute of Nuclear Medicine & Allied Sciences (INMAS), DRDO laboratories in Delhi have designed and developed ultraviolet C light-based sanitization box and handheld UV-C (ultraviolet light with wavelength 254 nanometres) device, it said.

The UV-C consists of a shorter, more energetic wavelength of light. The statement said it is particularly good at destroying genetic material in COVID-19.

The UV-C box is designed for disinfecting personal belongings like mobile phones, tablets, purse, currency, a cover of office files, etc.

Meanwhile, a webinar was organized by the Society of Indian Defence Manufacturers (SIDM) in collaboration with the DRDO on Friday, led by the Secretary Department of Defence Research (DD R&D) and Chairman Defence Research and Development Organisation (DRDO) Dr. G Satheesh Reddy and other stakeholders.

Reddy addressed the plenary session and lauded the efforts of the industry in coming forward to produce COVID-19-related medical equipment for supporting the national cause of combating the pandemic, the statement said.

He briefed on the new DRDO design for PPEs and assured that complete know-how will be shared with industries seeking it, it said.

Reddy also said R&D efforts are being undertaken on the reusability of the PPE fabrics. A serious effort is being put into the indigenization of critical components for ventilators, oxygen cylinders, goggles, test kits, swabs, and Viral Transport Mediums (VTMs), the statement added.
