Boeing licenses portable Ultraviolet Wand to Florida-based Healthe, Inc. to fight COVID-19. Healthe will manufacture an ultraviolet (UV) wand designed to sanitize airplane interiors and support the safety and well-being of passengers and crews during the COVID-19 pandemic.

"The UV wand is designed to be more effective than similar devices. It quickly disinfects surfaces on an airplane and further strengthens other layers of protection for passengers and crew," said Mike Delaney, who leads Boeing's CTI efforts. "Boeing spent six months transforming an idea for the wand into a working model, and Healthe will now take that prototype and make it available to the world at large."

The new technology could be available to airlines in late fall to help combat the coronavirus pandemic.

"We are proud to be assisting Boeing as they work with their partner airlines to enhance in-cabin plane sanitization efforts. This could also benefit schools, hospitals, offices, wherever pathogens go," said Abe Morris, Healthe executive chairman. "As we ramp up deployment of our cutting-edge UVC and Far-UVC 222 light solutions across many sectors, this new commercial-grade wand will be another powerful tool in the sanitization arsenal to protect passengers against the spread of harmful viruses."
