The company will develop prototypes as part of the service’s Vantage program. Formerly Army Leader Dashboard, the program aims to provide more visibility to the military branch’s classified, unclassified, unstructured and structured data through an analytics, visualization and integration platform.
Work on the Vantage program is now underway. The OTA, which was awarded in mid-December, could reach more than $400M in total, according to the report.
“The problem for Army’s leaders and commanders at every level is you’re trying to make decisions off of accurate data but the data is stored in so many places, it’s often very hard to figure out what’s going on,” said Doug Philippone, lead of global defense at Palantir. “What we did was integrate thousands and thousands of different data tables together so that you can make better decisions.”
