North Dakota Signs Participating Addendum with Avion Unmanned to Provide Drone Services to Public Agencies

HUNTSVILLE, Ala.– Avion Unmanned, the Unmanned Aircraft Systems (UAS) division of Avion Solutions, Inc., signed a participating addendum with the State of North Dakota and all its state agencies, political subdivisions and institutions. This contract opens the door for Avion Unmanned to provide UAS services to state and local government agencies in North Dakota.

“Providing a simplified direct path for government agencies at all levels to request unmanned aircraft operations is finally a reality. With the signing of this Participating Addendum with North Dakota, Avion Unmanned has been selected to 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.

Based on proven expertise, Avion Unmanned has been chosen to provide UAS services nationwide through the National Association of State Procurement Officials (NASPO) ValuePoint Cooperative Purchasing Organization. Among the UAS services Avion Unmanned can provide are: Emergency Services, Law Enforcement Support, Aerial Inspection and Mapping Data Services, support to Agricultural and Gaming, as well as Agency Media Relations and Marketing. Virginia’s Department of General Service (DGS) and NASPO are working together through Contract E194-79435 to provide agencies easier access to UAS or drone services to organizations like Avion Unmanned.

“Avion Unmanned’s solutions will help North Dakota’s state and local agencies reduce operational risks, improve efficiency, and gather better data for use in critical areas, including law enforcement, disaster response, agriculture management, infrastructure monitoring, and construction development,” said Chad Donald, President and CEO of Avion Solutions.
