The US Army Contracting Command has awarded a contract to Palantir Technologies to integrate multiple databases into a single dashboard.

The US Army Contracting Command has awarded a contract to Palantir Technologies to integrate multiple databases into a single dashboard.

Under the other transaction agreement contract, Palantir will be responsible for the integration of ‘numerous databases across the army enterprise’ into a unified platform, the US Department of Defense (DoD) announced on 13 December.

The four-year contract is valued at around $110.81m. The company will perform the contract work in Washington, District of Columbia. Work is expected to be completed by 15 December 2023.

Palantir Technologies global defence business head Doug Philippone was quoted by The Washington Post as saying: “Data integration is Palantir’s core business and we’re proud to help the Army make better use of their own data.

“We look forward to continuing to grow our partnership with the men and women of the US Army and will do everything we can to ensure this technology makes them more successful.”

The publication stated that Palantir will provide a version of its Foundry data analytics platform to help with the integration effort.

The company is also working on Project Maven, which is a major artificial intelligence development programme of the DoD.

Earlier, technology giant Google stated that it would not work with the Pentagon on the Maven programme following employee protests.

In March, Palantir was awarded a $800m contract by the US Army to provide a new tactical version of its Distributed Common Ground System-Army (DGCS-A).
