Design of air circuit disinfection against COVID-19 in the conditions of airliners

The current full-range problem posed by the COVID-19 virus is being fought in every area, from health care, through economics, to technology. Designers in various fields are known for technological measures to reduce the restrictions resulting from measures against the spread of the virus. Aviation has suffered from the grounding of aircraft and the cessation of air traffic perhaps the most, so there is an effort to restart the operation of aircraft. The present article deals with the design of the implementation of air disinfection in the cockpit, to ensure the maximum possible safety during flight. During the research, the authors focused on the use of disinfection using ultraviolet radiation and its possibility of incorporation into the ventilation system of aircraft. The research results represent specific proposals and design of the installation for the aircraft Airbus A320 and represent specific proposals for general installation in aviation. Such a system could in the future increase the safety of flying due to the spread of viruses and bacteria in the cockpit of the aircraft and allow the resumption of air traffic.
