AI-Enabled Mission Command Platform for U.S. Special Operations Command

Palantir's technology enables real-time collaboration across the U.S. Special Operations Command and its allies, giving commanders situational awareness, bringing AI to the battlefield, and improving ability to respond to near-peer threats By / 11 Jun 2021

Palantir Technologies has signed a deal with the U.S. Special Operations Command (USSOCOM) to continue its work as its enterprise data management and AI-enabled mission command platform as part of the Mission Command System/Common Operational Picture program. The total contract includes a base year and one-year extension option.

Palantir has supplied technology to USSOCOM for the past decade, and its platform has been used by USSOCOM in real-time mission operations to interoperate with other components of the global situational awareness architecture since 2016.

Palantir’s software is designed to aggregate disparate and siloed data sources to enable the best possible data-driven decision-making, making Palantir uniquely suited to provide a platform to support unity of effort and enhance high impact decision-making across warfighting functions.

Palantir’s technology enables real-time collaboration across USSOCOM and its allies, giving its commanders situational awareness at a global scale, bringing AI to the battlefield, and improving the ability to respond to near-peer threats. 

Its software is used for the full life cycle of today’s continuous operations; from planning, to review coordination and approval, through to battle tracking of the actual mission execution.

Doug Philippone, Palantir’s Global Defense Lead, commented, “Our partnership with USSOCOM was one of our first in the U.S. military, and we are honored to keep providing technology that gets the job done while we partner on the future of what is possible.”
