Palantir Selected by the National Nuclear Security Administration for 5-year, $89.9M Contract for SAFER Project
DENVER, April 4, 2021 –(BUSINESS WIRE)–Palantir Technologies Inc. (NYSE:PLTR) today announced it had been selected by the National Nuclear Security Administration (NNSA) to provide its Office of Safety, Infrastructure, and Operations with a platform for effective knowledge management and data-driven decision-making in an agreement worth up to $89.9 million for a duration of up to 5 years.
Palantir will serve as the platform for NNSA’s Safety Analytics, Forecasting, and Evaluation Reporting (SAFER) project. SAFER will help the NNSA in their mission to manage nuclear security by allowing it to best allocate its human and financial resources to prioritize safety. This is Palantir’s first contract with the NNSA.
For SAFER, Palantir will configure a common operating picture that will integrate data and allow the NNSA to measure the health of safety programs across the organization and provide timely insights into data. The program will give NNSA staff the ability to track, trend, query, analyze, and visualize safety metrics from different sites across the country. Palantir’s software allows for the integration of data across the enterprise regardless of data type or source system, and its granular security model is uniquely suited for the NNSA to collaborate across its sites securely.
“Our work with NNSA illustrates Palantir’s mission to provide software to the world’s most important institutions in support of their most critical work,” said Palantir USG President Akash Jain. “We are excited to expand our work within the U.S. government and provide the NNSA with a high-tech solution to make the best possible use of its resources in support of the Nation’s nuclear security missions.”
Established by Congress in 2000, NNSA is a semi-autonomous agency within the U.S. Department of Energy responsible for enhancing national security through the military application of nuclear science. NNSA maintains and enhances the safety, security, and effectiveness of the U.S. nuclear weapons stockpile; works to reduce the global danger from weapons of mass destruction; provides the U.S. Navy with safe and militarily effective nuclear propulsion; and responds to nuclear and radiological emergencies in the United States and abroad.
