ASTORS’ Recognizes Transit Technology Innovator for Groundbreaking COVID-19 Emergency Response Solution

Plano, TX – December 14, 2021 — Luminator Technology Group (Luminator) announced today it is the recipient of a 2021 ‘ASTORS’ Homeland Security Award from American Security Today for the Renew™ Air Treatment system.

Honored for its response to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Renew Air Treatment system is deployed by mass transportation agencies and dispenses Grignard Pure™, an antimicrobial air treatment, through a connected, technologically advanced system proven to kill 98% of SARS-CoV-2 virus particles in the air, where transmission is most likely.

The adaptive system utilizes on-board sensors to automatically adjust the system based upon the fresh air intake and other conditions in the vehicle, maintaining proper concentration for efficacy – even with doors opening and closing as passengers embark and disembark the vehicle. As conditions change, such as fluctuations of fresh air intake throughout the route, the system maintains an effective level to continuously kill virus particles in the air. 

“As a trusted partner to transit organizations across the globe, Luminator is dedicated to supporting the safe return of ridership aboard public transportation. This award is a clear indication that Luminator’s Renew Air Treatment System enables transit leaders to run safe operations for their passengers and operators amid the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic,” said Kirk Goins, CEO of Luminator. 

American Security Today’s Annual ‘ASTORS’ Awards is the preeminent U.S. Homeland Security awards program and recognizes industry leaders of physical and border security, cybersecurity, emergency preparedness management and response, law enforcement, first responders, as well as federal, state and municipal government agencies in the acknowledgment of their outstanding efforts to keep our nation secure.

The Annual ‘ASTORS’ Awards Program is specifically designed to honor distinguished government and vendor solutions that deliver enhanced value, benefit, and intelligence to end-users in a variety of government, homeland security, enterprise, and public safety vertical markets.

“‘ASTORS’ nominations are evaluated on their technical innovation, interoperability, specific impact within the category, overall impact to the industry, relatability to other industry technologies, and application feasibility outside of the industry,” said American Security Today’s Publisher, Michael J. Madsen.
