NVision Solutions Contracted by Corps of Engineers for Great Lakes Flood Plain Management

June 07, 2011 -- Bay Saint Louis, Miss. –NVision Solutions, Inc. has been awarded a contract by the U.S. Army Engineer Research and Development Center (ERDC) in Vicksburg, MS, to provide aerial-data collection services for the entire Great Lakes Region coastline to help with flood plain management.  NVision will provide seamless, high-resolution oblique color images along approximately 6,000 miles of the coastline of all five Great Lakes within the U.S. The flights will test the new ERDC system and support other U.S. Army Corps of Engineer (USACE) activities. 

NVision has partnered with Aerotec, LLC to use their specialized Partenavia P68C fixed-wing aircraft and FAA-certified flight operations team.   “We are pleased to partner with Aerotec as we have routinely partnered with them on several geospatial engineering projects,” said NVision President Socorro Harvey.  “Together, we are like a well-oiled machine.”  Aerotec is based in Bessemer, Alabama with offices in Picayune, MS. 

The data collection, which will require weeks of flight-time with nightly transfer of data for quality control, will be used with various Google technologies for documentation and can be used for rapid response for any type of event. 

Both NVision and Aerotec are active members of the EIGS geospatial technology cluster of the Magnolia Business Alliance (MBA). MBA’s goal is to impact economic development by serving as an advocate for small and medium-sized businesses.

NVision, headquartered near the NASA Stennis Space Center in south Mississippi, is an established defense contractor for geospatial technology and services including several subcontracts to U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) prime contractors.  NVision also served the USACE through multiple FEMA contracts related to Hurricane Katrina. NVision is available through the U.S. General Services Administration (GSA) Schedule 70 contract; however, USACE issued this contract as an 8(a) competitive award.  NVision’s status as an 8(a) minority, woman-owned company allows the USACE to meet multiple specific federal contracting requirements.
