Critical event management (CEM) company Everbridge has been contracted to support the US Department of Defense’s (DoD) Joint Analytic Real-Time Virtual Information Sharing System (JARVISS).

The three-year contract has been awarded by the US Army and includes the Air Force Materiel Command (AFMC) and Air Force North (AFNORTH).

The US Air Force’s two subordinate commands have committed to adopting JARVISS to advance capabilities such as ‘respective threat information sharing and analytics’.

The company has been tasked to deliver its software solutions to power the enterprise system for threat visibility.

Everbridge Federal vice-president Mike Mostow said: “The Everbridge team feels honoured to power JARVISS and provide army and other DoD users worldwide with threat intelligence and early warning data to protect our soldiers and their families across our nation and around the world.

“At Everbridge, we share a deep sense of responsibility towards those who keep us safe.”

With this contract, the US Army joins over 70 federal agencies that are supported by the Everbridge CEM platform.

According to the company, JARVISS majorly focuses on ‘antiterrorism and other security threats’. These threats include active shooters and natural disasters that could affect DoD operations.

JARVISS translates the information into actionable data, which aids in real-time decision-making for commanders.

Last May, the US Army said it is using JARVISS technology to help leaders make real-time, force-protection decisions.

Since the outbreak of the ongoing pandemic, JARVISS has been engaged in providing support for threat analysis of the disease.

This analysis gave critical insight on the impact of Covid-19 across 400 global military locations to army commanders and other DoD users.
