US Army Selects Palantir’s Intelligence Data Fabric and Analytics Solution
Palantir Technologies has been selected by the U.S. Army’s Program Manager for Intelligence Systems and Analytics to deliver the intelligence data fabric and analytics foundation for the service’s Capability Drop 2 program. The Denver, Colorado-based software company said it is now progressing into the next phase of the Army’s competitive $823 million indefinite-delivery/indefinite-quantity contract.
Doug Philippone, Palantir’s global defense lead, said the company looks forward to the continued partnership with Program Executive Officer for Intelligence, Electronic Warfare and Sensors and the Army’s intelligence community, in providing new technology that will help the service move forward with its modernization efforts.
CD-2 is one of the company’s projects with the PEO IEW&S to modernize the Army’s intelligence enterprise, alongside the earlier Capability Drop 1 and the Tactical Intelligence Targeting Access Node programs, Palantir said Tuesday.
Under the latest deal, Palantir will deploy its proprietary Gotham Platform to support Army intelligence users worldwide with “a globally federated intelligence data fabric and analytics platform spanning multiple security classifications.” This capability, in turn, will enable modern data integration, correlation, fusion and analytic capabilities that will prepare the Army for the next significant conflict with sophisticated adversaries, the company said.
Palantir described Gotham as an operating system for defense decision-making and is specifically designed to connect the dots between disparate sources. The Army intelligence community seeks to use this capability to modernize the service’s data foundation by migrating legacy programs to the modern CD-2.
After collaborating on a successful “Test, Fix, Test” process, Palantir said it will continue to support the Army as it proceeds through the final testing and fielding of the program.
