Joint Assessment of Catastrophic Events (JACE) is a Web-based system allowing simulations and resource access pertinent to events involving counter-terrorism and counter-proliferation issues. These events include the deployment of weapons of mass destruction (WMD) and conventional explosives. A qualified user may access JACE via the Internet or secure SIPRNET, using a browser to query a variety of resources, including hazards and consequences from the Consequences Assessment Tool Set (CATS), and receive an interactive depiction of results via ArcIMS and other graphics tools. JACE is a product of a federal government consortium led by the National Ground Intelligence Center (NGIC).
