Ready, Set, Disinfect! GMA International Services, Inc. Provides Solution to Tackle Mass Transit Health Concerns With Project DragonBreath™

DAVIE, Fla.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--As urban centers try to bring workers back to the office during COVID-19, mass transit authorities are challenged with the need for quick and effective disinfection of commuter transit systems. GMA International Services, Inc. (GMAI) introduces the DragonBreath Automated Disinfecting System, which provides transit authorities and fleet managers with a turnkey solution that couples effective fogging capability with the latest control and communication technology. DragonBreath ensures safe and thorough disinfection while dramatically reducing labor-intensive costs.


  • DragonBreath is an adaptable, fully automated, remote-controlled fogging system installed on-board that is capable of effectively disinfecting everything from individual railcars to multiple trainsets simultaneously.
  • Automated disinfection can be achieved remotely, where no staff is required inside vehicles, thereby eliminating their continuous exposure to chemicals. Users can schedule and execute fogging events for multiple trainsets utilizing our innovative software.
  • Disinfectants utilized or generated by DragonBreath are non-toxic, non-corrosive, EPA-approved solutions found on List N that destroy SARS-CoV-2, but also kill other viruses, bacteria, or fungi that are on the surface or in the air in less than 10 minutes.
  • The core system can be fitted into any vehicle interior configuration, which often includes operator and conductor cabs, and bathrooms.

“In response to COVID-19, we are pleased to present DragonBreath’s advanced disinfection technologies that provide comprehensive safety precautions for all travelers and employees that rely on mass transit,” said Gino M. Antoniello, President and CEO of GMA International Services, Inc. “As we navigate new norms in the aftermath of this pandemic, this technology will complement the advances being made in the medical and scientific communities, along with new public policy and the cooperation of the general public through social distancing behaviors. Our technology serves as a comprehensive mitigating response to ensure that those who rely on mass transit can do so again safely. The resulting system harmonizes industrial components with state-of-the-art controls to provide a holistic approach that allows for an unobtrusive answer to a disruptive problem.”

While finalizing the production version of DragonBreath, GMAI is also releasing the technology into the field for specific pilot programs to demonstrate its capabilities for mass transit systems and other large-space applications.

The DragonBreath Automated Disinfecting System allows transit authorities to restore the riding public’s confidence while safeguarding everyone’s health. This relatively small investment not only addresses the industry’s immediate challenges at hand, but also prepares transportation infrastructure for future similar scenarios.
