FALLS CHURCH, VIRGINIA – November 8, 2018 – Evans Incorporated, the leading provider of human-centered organizational and operational consulting solutions, is proud to announce its won the Program of the Year category in the 2018 Greater Washington Government Contractor Awards, for work executed by its PropelUAS® division with the Loudoun County Sheriff’s Office (LCSO). Evans Incorporated was also named a finalist for Government Contractor of the Year ($25 million) at the awards gala, which took place on November 5, 2018.
After years of supporting the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), with the integration of UAS into the National Airspace System, Evans Incorporated created PropelUAS in response to the federal government’s increased use of flying drones and technological advances. PropelUAS partners with organizations to assist in navigating and integrating innovative, cost-saving UAS technologies into their organizations.
Uniquely positioned to assist public safety organization, one of the first projects PropelUAS executed was the Loudoun County Sheriff’s Office (LCSO)’s “Project Lifesaver” program. The program featured drones, which use electronic tracking to locate people with medical conditions such as autism or Alzheimer’s who may wander away from home. PropelUAS helped the LCSO obtain their FAA drone pilot certification and oversaw training. Since the launch, the LCSO has rescued several individuals, including a 92-year-old man, located within 20 minutes of deploying the drone.
“We’re honored by this recognition. Evans Incorporated and PropelUAS both strive to offer companies guidance to prosper in their corporate evolutions,” said Sue Evans, President and Founder of Evans Incorporated, parent company to PropelUAS. “The LCSO an expensive piece of technology that they weren’t able to fly. They placed trust in PropelUAS to guide them through regulatory hurdles and licensing to put it right into action, showing our reputation as an innovative industry leader is strong. It also shows the need for an industry (such as first responders) to adapt to and use modern technologies in their day-to-day functions.”
