A recent press release states, “Everbridge, Inc., the global leader in critical event management (CEM), today announced that JARVISS, the U.S. Army’s enterprise system for threat visibility, powered by the Everbridge Risk Intelligence Monitoring Center, has been deployed to assess and respond to the impact that the COVID-19 outbreak has on Army staff, facilities, installations, and offsite special events. The Joint Analytic Real-Time Virtual Information Sharing System (JARVISS) primarily focuses on antiterrorism and other security threats such as active shooters and natural disasters that might affect Department of Defense (DoD) operations. With the outbreak and rapid spread of COVID-19, JARVISS provides instrumental support to ongoing threat analysis of the pandemic, giving the Army insight into the impact to global DoD operations.”
The release goes on, “In response to the coronavirus crisis, JARVISS utilizes Everbridge’s new COVID-19 data layers and software for actionable intelligence and report creation. The platform accesses more than 1,400 situational awareness modules across the globe, as well as data from Everbridge’s Risk Intelligence Monitoring Center feed. Army analysts receive real-time insight into how the virus is disrupting critical infrastructure, including bases in the U.S. and abroad, hospitals, recruiting stations, Reserve and National Guard operational units, police and fire locations, and more. The Army worked with Everbridge to create more than 90 risk profiles in order to track threats to these assets. A custom Incident Dashboard allows users to send targeted alerts through the JARVISS Mobile App, SMS, e-mails and other modalities.”
