Joint Effects Model (JEM) is a Web-based software application that supplies the DoD with the one and only accredited tool to effectively model and simulate the effects of chemical, biological, radiological and nuclear (CBRN) weapon strikes and incidents. JEM can provide warfighters with the ability to accurately model and predict the time-phased impact of CBRN and Toxic Industrial Chemical/Material (TIC/TIM) events and effects. JEM supports planning to mitigate the effects of weapons of mass destruction and to provide rapid estimates of hazards and effects integrated into the Common Operational Picture (COP).
JEM Increment 2 is being developed to replace JEM Increment 1 and will use the agile development process to incrementally add capabilities.
BENEFIT TO THE WARFIGHTER
JEM provides warfighters with the only DoD-accredited modeling capability to predict high-fidelity downwind hazard areas and effects associated with the release of CBRN and Toxic Industrial Hazards (TIH) into the environment; incorporate the impacts of weather, terrain and material interactions into the downwind prediction; provide enhanced situational awareness of the battlespace; and deliver near real-time hazard information to influence and minimize CBRN and TIH effects on current operations, and to save lives.
