The State of Connecticut has signed a deal with Avion Unmanned, a branch of engineering and logistics solutions provider Avion Solutions.
The deal means that all drones used by state and local government in Connecticut will be provided by Avion.
This comes after news in August of last year that Avion had signed a similar multi-state deal regarding the supply of drones for the public sector.
Avion says thanks to this experience it is capable of providing drone services to emergency services, law enforcement, aerial inspection and mapping data services, agriculture and game departments, as well as agency media relations and marketing.
Avion Unmanned senior program manager Taylor Abingdon commented: “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 Connecticut, 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.”
Avion solutions was founded in 1992. It won a 2019 Best Places to Work award.
