NVision is a young company building a solid portfolio of customer success by creating unique, innovative geospatial solutions for small and large organizations. Based at the Stennis Technology Park in Bay St. Louis, MS, NVision provides a full range of information technology (IT), software design and development, database design and engineering, and GIS and remote sensing services and solutions.
In the late 1990ís, NASA Stennis Space Center was the epicenter of the nationís satellite data creation and dissemination. The NASA Commercial Remote Sensing Program (CRSP) was at its peak and was actively developing programs to provide commercial support for the growing remote sensing program. One of those programs, the Mississippi Space Commerce Initiative, (MSCI) was developed and jointly funded by both the State of Mississippi and NASA to help create a Geospatial industry in Mississippi to support NASAís CRSP. NVision Solutions, Inc. incorporated on March 14th, 2002 to take advantage of that program. The geospatial industry experienced rapid growth through advances in technology, satellite data quality, GPS, and telecommunications from 1990 to 2005. My plan was to develop a company from the ground up positioned to capitalize on the existing market and be agile enough to continually place itself ahead of the market.
With incorporation complete, NVision immediately became a member of MSCI, and joined the Mississippi Enterprise for Technology (MsET). The company moved into MSeTís incubator space on NASAís Stennis Space Center. The doors were opened for business.
NVision worked directly with the NASA Stennis Space Center Technology Transfer Office to capitalize on existing technology and to gain a historical understanding of when, where, and how NASA traditionally put research in the hands of the commercial sector.
Even with existing business relationships at the Stennis federal installation, and respected subject matter experts, it took NVision over five months to compete for and win our first contract. That first contract was a watershed moment and we have been competing for and winning contracts of all sizes with virtually every federal agency as well as commercial contracts in numerous industries ever since.
On November 5th, 2002 my corporation received certification from the Mississippi Development Authority as a small, disadvantaged, minority, woman-owned business and February 7th, 2005 we received federal 8(a) status as a small, disadvantaged, minority, woman-owned business. We graduate from the 8(a) program in 2014 and are excited about the foundation we have built, the quality and loyalty of our employees, and the future of NVision.
During the last decade my company has grown by leaps and bounds. We have survived the impacts of Hurricane Katrina, the Deepwater Horizon Oil Spill, and two economic recessions. We have a hard-working staff that is a continual source of inspiration and pride for me as we meet our customers' challenges with innovative solutions and top-notch, responsive customer service.
