Rhode Island Signs Participating Addendum with DroneUp

Provides Public Sector Agencies Access to Drone Services

DroneUp and the State of Rhode Island have signed a Participating Addendum for Unmanned Aerial Vehicle services.

This begins the offering to purchase complete drone solutions to all state agencies, commissions, political subdivisions, institutions, and local public bodies allowed by law. The award is the first of its kind for the drone industry and a highly anticipated announcement.

DroneUp, a leading complete drone services provider for aerial data collection, was awarded the Unmanned Aerial Systems (UAS) Services Master Agreement #E194-79435 by the Commonwealth of Virginia in August 2019. The services under the award are available for use by all 50 states, the District of Columbia, and the United States territories through the National Association of State Procurement Officials (NASPO) ValuePoint Cooperative Purchasing Organization. The State of Rhode Island can now use the award for the benefit of state departments, institutions, agencies, political subdivisions, and other eligible entities.

DroneUp’s award includes but is 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. It’s anticipated that the primary users will be Agriculture & Game Management, Emergency Management, Transportation, Forestry, Mines, Minerals and Energy, and Public Universities and Community Colleges.

Tom Walker, DroneUp’s CEO, stated, “Rhode Island allows businesses to thrive through education and innovation. DroneUp looks forward to supporting our hardworking state and local agencies both in Rhode Island and nationwide.”
