The deployable system also comes with a rapid, UV decontamination tool. The tool uses automated UV-C light to reduce the presence of viruses, bacteria, and spores. It includes multiple UV light emitters that can decontaminate a room in minutes and works with new, mobile systems as well as existing imaging systems, according to the company.
