PlanetRisk Awarded $12.4M Contract With U.S. Army to Enhance Antiterrorism Threat Awareness Through Real-Time Information Sharing
WASHINGTON, April 9, 2018 (Newswire.com) - PlanetRisk, a pioneer in enterprise risk analytics, has been awarded a four-and-a-half-year contract by the U.S. Department of the Army to support its Joint Analytic Real-time Virtual Information Sharing System (JARVISS), a premier global threat information sharing system that assists the Army in effectively and efficiently identifying and assessing incidents and threats in close proximity to military facilities in a near real-time environment.
“JARVISS delivers enhanced collaboration capabilities between Army protection community stakeholders at multiple echelons, helping them make rapid, accurate decisions based on open source information and advanced data analysis,” said Paul McQuillan, President and CEO of PlanetRisk. “Our team is extremely excited to provide over 45,000 Army users worldwide with a powerful platform that plays a critical role in securing facilities and our forces, protecting soldiers and their families across our nation and around the world.”
JARVISS is a cloud-based Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) solution for web and mobile platforms. The system received a DoD RMF Authority to Operate and is on track to become FedRAMP certified. JARVISS fuses and transforms vast amounts of complex, open source and commercial data into actionable information, providing the Army an enterprise system for sharing and reporting threat information and mitigating risks. JARVISS’ multi-tier architecture enables cross-agency information sharing with the ability to control access to information based on user and platform trust levels. JARVISS enhances the Army’s ability to receive and catalog all hazard events, suspicious activities and threat information providing users the ability to view threat information before, during and after an incident. JARVISS is planned for an Army-wide rollout in the 3rd Quarter of FY18.
By having PlanetRisk’s Global Risk Platform powering JARVISS, the Army will be able to improve real-time and continuous threat information sharing capabilities, improve threat information sharing as well as enhance the Army’s threat assessment, analysis, and collaborative capabilities.
