PlanetRisk books $12M Army visual info support system contract

Analytics technology provider PlanetRisk has won a four-and-a-half year, $12.5 million contract to help the Army run a global system for sharing information on incidents and threats in the proximity of military facilities.

The Joint Analytic Real-time Virtual Information Sharing System is based in a cloud environment and works to integrate complex, open source and commercial data into pieces of information for the Army to both share and report.

PlanetRisk said Monday that "JARVISS" holds a Defense Department authority-to-operate and is also on track to become FedRAMP certified. The Army plans to fully roll out JARVISS later this year.

The Army uses JARVISS to receive and catalog hazard events and suspicious activities in order for users to view threat information before, during and after an incident.

JARVISS is also designed with a multi-tier architecture for other agencies to share information based on trust levels of users and platforms to control access.
