NV5 Global Inc. has completed its acquisition of L3Harris Technologies Inc.’s Visual Information Solutions (VIS) commercial geospatial technology and software business. The technology, conformity assessment, and consulting solutions provider first announced the acquisition in December and has now received regulatory approvals to proceed. The deal further enhances NV5’s position as a geospatial data solutions provider in North America since its earlier acquisition of Axim Geospatial. The VIS business will help NV5 to offer subscription-based geospatial products and services to the defense and intelligence communities using geospatial information management and analytics. According to NV5 chairman and CEO Dickerson Wright, the company is the only provider of software solutions for analyzing over 200 geospatial data types, along with in-house LiDAR, topobathymetric LiDAR, and full ocean depth sonar capabilities. The deal also includes 16 U.S. patents for geospatial data analytics and 13 U.S. and non-U.S. trademark registrations for leading geospatial software applications with about 500,000 global users. Among the products included in the patents and trademark registrations are ENVI, IDL, Jagwire, Amplify, and Helios, which are widely used by the U.S. Department of Defense and federal civilian agencies for the analysis and management of geospatial data, NV5 said.
