Montana Signs Agreements for Drone Services
Monday, January 13, 2020 | Comments

DroneUp and the state of Montana signed a participating addendum for the  National Association of State Procurement Officials (NASPO) ValuePoint contract for unmanned aerial systems (UAS) services. This begins the offering for the purchase of complete drone solutions to all state agencies, commissions, political subdivisions, institutions and local public bodies allowed by law.

DroneUp, an end-to-end drone pilot service provider for aerial data collection, was awarded the UAS services master agreement #E194-79435 by the commonwealth of Virginia in August. Montana is now able to use the award for the benefit of state departments, institutions, agencies, political subdivisions and other eligible entities.

Avion Unmanned, the UAS division of Avion Solutions, also signed a participating addendum with the state of Montana and all its state agencies, political subdivisions and institutions for Avion Unmanned to provide UAS services to the state agencies.

"With the signing of this participating addendum with Montana, Avion Unmanned may provide critical data collection services to organizations who desperately need it, but have never before had a contract vehicle to acquire vetted, legal and safe operations in a timely manner," said Taylor Abington, senior program manager of Avion Unmanned.

Both awards include but are not limited to service categories for emergency support services, law enforcement support, aerial inspection or mapping data services, agricultural and gaming, and agency media relations and marketing.
