The award-winning State Farm Arena, home of the Atlanta Hawks, is the first in the NBA to use drones for disinfection, as the arena prepares to host the annual NBA All-Star Festivities and start the second half of the 2020-21 season.
State Farm Arena has brought on Lucid Drone Technologies to use their D1 Disinfecting Drone (D1) to help in sanitizing the 17,500 seat venue between events.
“The approximately 27-pound drone holds a 10-liter tank of cleaning solution and is equipped with multiple sets of batteries and a custom charger to allow for continuous cleaning cycles,” says a Lucid press release. ” At full charge, the D1 can cover 150,000 square feet in an hour, making the total time to disinfect State Farm Arena one-and-a-half hours.”
