The story behind Violett
Violett co-founder Branden Doyle was working for the U.S. Department of Defense as a nuclear engineer and technology leader when the Covid-19 pandemic hit. He led a team of engineers and scientists to determine the best available solutions to keep critical workers safe, especially in small compartments with poor ventilation on aircraft carriers and submarines. After months of testing existing solutions in Navy labs on live germs, the team determined current solutions did not work well enough to keep these critical government and military workers safe. The UVC light solutions that were tested worked well and killed all known germs, but required the germs to remain in the UVC light for a period of time to be properly ‘dosed’ and eliminated.
