Abstract: The disinfectant spraying activity includes a part of efforts to prevent the spread of Covid-19. Spraying is usually done by manual method. This condition results in uneven spraying and it takes a long time. So, automatic disinfectant sprayers is the way to resolve this problem. This study aims to determine the effectiveness of disinfectant spray devices based on drones. The application of automation is obtained from the use of drone technology and testing the spraying in interval time. This research is conducted by using a drone design study method and field testing. The design of the drone as a spray tool is based on the basic assembled X6 tarot framework. The drone that will be used later can lift up to 6 kg as a maximum weight. The design stage begins by conducting a literature study of the type of control use. Control settings are made by calibrating the device to the drone’s load to obtain the maximum movement. The use of drones for spraying disinfectant liquid is done by taking off using the flying mode automatically regulated through the Mission Planner software. The results showed that the prototype drone uses a 6-liter tank capacity with a flight time of 6-8. In this case, the use of drones as disinfectant sprayers can facilitate spraying activities and cut down on application time.
