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,” said Doug Philippone, global defense lead at Palantir.
The contract has a base year and one option year, with the command executing $52.5 million of the potential value upon award.
