Vector and ATL Joint Venture Awarded DOE Contract to Provide Blue Small Unmanned Aircraft Systems Services
November 4, 2021
Hanford Mission Integration Solutions (HMIS) has awarded Vector Innovative Solutions, LLC (VIS), a joint venture between Vector Solutions and Advanced Technologies and Laboratories International, a PSI company, a contract to provide and conduct Small Unmanned Aircraft Systems Services (sUAS) Commercial Air Service (CAS) missions. The contract includes aerial surveillance imagery and 3D mapping services in support of HMIS, the Department of Energy (DOE), and other Hanford Site contractors.
VIS, a Service-Disabled Veteran-Owned Small Business (SDVOSB), is one of the first contractors to provide services using the proprietary equipment and is pioneering the provision of cost-effective drone imagery services using American-made sUAS for the U.S. Government. Until recently, use of sUAS on federal land such as the Hanford Site was prohibited. Due to regulatory changes in March 2021, DOE now approves the use of Blue sUAS equipment following strict DOE and FAA guidelines. VIS leverages its years of DoD military experience supporting manned aviation programs and special air operations to provide flexible sUAS platforms and responsive pilot services to HMIS in accordance with national regulations.
The purpose of the HMIS contract is to provide Infrastructure and Site Services in direct support of the DOE to accomplish the Hanford Site environmental cleanup mission. Under the contract, the Vector Team provides Blue sUAS services to fulfill mission requests for the Hanford Page 2 site including, but not limited to, critical incident response, infrastructure inspections, and rescue, wildlife, and land management activities. Vector is an approved contractor on the DOE Office of Aviation Management (OAM) CAS “Accepted Operator List.”
Luke Layman, CEO of Vector Solutions, says “Leveraging emerging technology in sensitive environments is core to our capability and we are excited to be selected as the premier partner to HMIS and DOE in the execution of this critical drone program.”
“We are honored to continue to leverage VIS’s capabilities to support the data needs of the DOE Hanford Site environmental cleanup mission using safe, DIU-approved sUAS,” said ATL COO Bill Niemeyer. “This award will enable ATL’s joint venture with
Vector Solutions to execute its growth strategy and is a testament to our credibility and success in establishing an integrated team dedicated to solving the data needs of the DOE mission.”
The drone equipment used are federally approved by the US Department of Defense (DoD) through the DoD Innovation Unit’s Blue sUAS project established in 2020 and compliant with presidential directives for information security.

Wilburn said there will be a ceremony some time in the spring to mark the official completion of the project. Those visiting the site can see a difference. The cap and geo-synthetic liners are now covered with grass and vegetation. "Most people are surprised when they come out here and see how clean it is," Jeff Webb said. Webb also works with the Kentucky Environmental Cabinet. "We have grass, vegetation and wildlife."
