Palantir to Implement AI Capabilities in US Army Combat Commands



The US Army Research Laboratory has awarded software company Palantir a contract to implement artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning capabilities for the service’s combat controls.

Valued at $99.9 million, the OK will see the company produce software platforms that will rapidly implement advanced AI capabilities to help solve some of the US Department of Defense’s most pressing problems.

According to Palantir, armed forces need “best in class” software to fulfill their missions and build their capabilities to prepare for future conflicts.

“Maintaining a cutting edge through technology is the foundation of our mission and our partnership with the Army Research Laboratory,” said the company’s president. Jain Akash said.

“We are honored to support this critical work by partnering to deliver the most advanced operational AI capabilities available with dozens of commercial and public sector partners.”

Senior Vice President of Palantir Shannon Clark explained that the software will allow US military personnel to leverage AI information to make quick decisions in multiple areas.

“From outer space to the bottom of the sea, and everything in between,” she pointed out.
