Modeling, Simulation, Stimulation, and Analysis Support
NVision provides operational and technical support services for the Federal customers by performing analysis of acoustic seafloor models to support mission-critical functions. Analyst results are used to help the warfighter assess and minimize risk to military personnel and assets.
NVision maintains a team of experienced analysts who have a broad set of highly-skilled capabilities. Our team uses multiple computer hardware systems to support division processing, dissemination, and archive capabilities. We provide real-time operational processing maintenance and support during and after normal working hours as required.
NVision performs problem identification, corrects problems, documents problem resolution, notifies US Government (USG) personnel, and prepares and submits reports.
Software Engineering, Development, Programming, and Network Support
NASA selected NVision Solutions to build the agency’s emergency management common operating picture incorporating all 14 NASA Centers. NASA Headquarters funded the purchase through a Phase III Small Business Innovative Research Proposal.
We built the system using our proprietary “Real-Time Emergency Action Coordination Technology” platform known as REACT. The US Department of Homeland Security awarded REACT a SAFETY Act Designation as a “Qualified Anti-Terrorism Technology” in 2010.
In 2011, NASA IT audited the NASA REACT System for compliance with NASA IT procedures as part of an internal nomination for REACT as the NASA software of the year. In order for NASA to deploy REACT it had to comply with all federal and NASA-specific IT policies and directives including 508 compliance, website usability, security, and documentation protocols.
The NASA REACT System connects all 14 centers using a centralized geospatial and web application server at the NASA Stennis Space Center in Mississippi with a redundant server at the Marshall Space Flight Center in Alabama. The design of the system required NVision to incorporate data feeds from multiple agencies into a common operating picture. Data feeds included near-real-time weather form overlays from the National Weather Service, ship traffic from the NOAA AIS system, air-traffic from the FAA, earthquake data from the USGS, localized weather data from onsite networked NASA weather stations, and ocean buoy data through NOAA’s ocean observation network.
Additional software components included a disconnected desktop tool, a windows mobile client, and an iPhone client. In addition to the highly-complex software component NVision delivered two large-format, multi-user, multi-touch surface computers to the NASA Stennis Space Center and NASA Headquarters from interactive collaboration within the REACT System.
Measurement Facilities, Range, and Instrumentation Support
NVision performs operational and technical support services for Navy customers. NVision personnel pilot semi-autonomous underwater vehicles equipped with ocean-measurement instrumentation. Glider pilots control gliders remotely to view ocean structure temporal changes. NVision provides 24/7/365 support and pilots work within a classified workspace environment using both government and commercial software. Pilots also support glider deployments and recovery operations. NVision provides real-time operational processing maintenance and support during and after normal working hours as required.
Functional and Administrative Support
NVision performed and provides administrative, graphic arts, multimedia communications, and program analysis support services to the Federal customers at the NASA Stennis Space Center (SSC). NVision provided an onsite Program Manager for receiving daily/weekly tasking.
