Airport officials say the robot, dubbed Breezy One, will be employed every night.

The device came from Build with Robotics and Fetch Robotics.

Fetch Robotics officials say it decontaminates spaces of more than 100,000 square feet (9,290 square meters) in under two hours. The robot uses a disinfectant developed at Sandia National Labs.
