The US Department of Defense (DoD) deployed Everbridge’s Joint Analytic Real-Time Virtual Information Sharing System (JARVISS) to monitor any events that had the potential to threaten life safety or cause operational disruption during the annual Army-Navy football game.
The game took place on 9 December 2023 at Gillette Stadium in Foxborough, Massachusetts and the safety of the event was coordinated by the DoD, FBI, Massachusetts State Police and a dozen other collaborating agencies.
“In an ever-changing and complex world, Everbridge’s JARVISS program is not only strategic to us but imperative for all levels of operations across the DoD and its Antiterrorism, Force Protection and Law Enforcement Communities,” said Matthew Cassidy, Force Protection / Antiterrorism Chief (G34), US Military Academy, West Point.
“Over the years we have heavily relied on the utilization of JARVISS and its team from Everbridge for our annual Army-Navy football game.
“It has been a significant force multiplier that has proven essential for mission security, advanced threat notifications, geospatial planning and detailed assessments.”
According to Everbridge, JARVISS was utilized to keep academy personnel, the State of Massachusetts and guest attendees safe and informed during the football game.
JARVISS provided real-time incident tracking and response as well as predictive analysis to counter existing hazards across six neighboring states.
“As a Boston-based company, Everbridge takes added pride in supporting the 2023 installment of the Army-Navy game,” said David Wagner, CEO of Everbridge.
“We consider it a great honor to celebrate and work alongside our military and veteran partners to help ensure that one of the great traditions in American athletics is carried out safely and with peace of mind for everyone involved.”
