May be recipient of one of 295 contracts handed out under its small business technology and research programs.

NASA is considering Stennis-based NVisions Solutions Inc. for one of 295 contracts handed out under its small business technology and research programs.

NVision's research proposal was among the 2,883 submitted by small, high-technology firms from throughout the United States. The combined award total for the 295 contracts is expected to be $21.3 million.

"These programs were created to stimulate innovative technology development from small companies," said company president Socorro Harvey. "It is a great honor for NVision Solutions and an excellent opportunity for our company to develop a unique product and distribute it nationwide."

NVision ( proposes to build a Web-based, remote-sensing application capable of providing point-and-click analysis of satellite and aerial imagery to users who do not have remote-sensing expertise or software. Potential uses include damage prevention and assessment by emergency management officials; help with fertilizer and pesticide decisions for farmers, and land-use evaluation by urban planners.

A final decision is expected in about a month. If selected, NVision will be awarded a fixed-price contract of up to $100,000 for a Phase I feasibility study. Once the company completes the first phase, it can compete for Phase II selection, which allows for a two-year, fixed-price contract of up to $600,000.
