Bridger Aerospace Team Awarded DOI Contract

Department of Interior Will Use The Company On A 'Call When Needed' Basis

Bridger Aerospace is pleased to announce that it has been awarded a contract by the Department of Interior ("DOI") to supply unmanned service support for wildland fire management on a "call when needed" basis.  The five-year IDIQ contract, which is the first of its kind awarded by DOI, will allow DOI to deploy contractor-operated and maintained small unmanned air systems ("UAS") that are ready when needed to support wildland fire operations, search and rescue, emergency management and other resource missions in the Continental United States and Alaska.

"We continue to focus on innovative and effective methods to improve the safety of aerial firefighting operations, and we look forward to continuing to serve communities that are threatened by wildfire danger," said Bridger's Founder and president Tim Sheehy.

To satisfy its obligations under the awarded contract, Bridger will be partnering with Silent Falcon UAS Technologies, one of a limited number of fixed wing UAS providers that has been recognized as satisfying DOI operational status requirements. James McBurney, President at Silent Falcon, stated, "We are extremely fortunate to partner with Bridger in this first of its kind UAS services contract, and we are excited to deploy the technology embedded in the Silent Falcon™, the only solar electric, long range, long endurance UAS."

Bridger is a veteran owned and operated company, FAA Part 135 Air Carrier and Part 107 certified UAV operator, and through its customer focused approach, the Company has grown from a one-man / one-plane operation to a fleet of nine manned aircraft, several UAVs and a broad base of government and civilian contracts.
