Palantir's Warp Core technology is utilized to make mission-critical decisions from enormous amounts of data, assisting Project Brown Heron in achieving all-domain situational awareness and decision-making.

"As we've seen in recent weeks, the threats to our nation in and through the space domain are very real, and we must continue to develop our Nation's Space Domain Awareness capabilities," said Doug Philippone, Palantir Technologies' worldwide military head.

Palantir also announced that Kinder Morgan, an energy infrastructure business, has inked a multi-year agreement to use the Foundry platform in its storage operations.
