JWARN correlates sensor alert information and observation reports to provide warnings to affected units and to supply data to the common operational picture.
A JWARN full-deployment decision was made for the Global Command and Control System--Army, the Global Command and Control System--Joint, the Command and Control Personal Computer, and the Joint Tactical Common Operating Picture Workstation in 2010.

consists of software and hardware components that link NBC detectors to tactical communications for NBC warning, reporting, and battlefield management.
Block I is an interim commercial - off-the - shelf/ government-off-the-shelf package that will be used until the objective JWARN has been developed and procured under the Block II program.
The Block IA package provides a variety of user documentation and NBC information, including the JWARN operator's manual, software user manuals, and lesson plans for self-training and the NBC Toolbox (a software tool that provides a variety of NBC-related information through an easy-to-use menu system).
