What is it?
The U.S. Army's Joint Analytic Real-time Virtual Information Sharing System (JARVISS) is a desktop and mobile application accredited to store Unclassified Army data and open source threat information from over 80,000 sources including social media, news media, blogs, and government sources.

What are the current and past efforts of the Army?
In 2018, JARVISS was designated the Army's Enterprise Solution for sharing Unclassified Threat information. JARVISS fielding began in 2018, and more than 10,000 command-level system administrators were trained in the first six months. JARVISS has been fielded to U.S. Army Europe and U.S. Army Pacific locations as well to command-level point of contacts at all Army commands.
What are the continued efforts planned by the Army?
Starting with power-projection platforms, the Army will continue to field JARVISS on all Army installations and other stand-alone facilities. The JARVISS team is developing a comprehensive installation Law Enforcement report to provide detailed analysis and planning using Army data. The JARVISS mobile application is also available through the Google Play and Apple App stores, and is in the process of certification for government cellphones through the Defense Information Systems Agency and U.S. Army Training and Doctrine Command app sites.
Why is this important to the Army?
JARVISS improves real-time threat information-sharing capabilities across the Army. Accurate real-time information, complete situational awareness, and a coordinated response help protect Army personnel and assets and is vital to ensure readiness.
