Palantir (NYSE: PLTR) Secures Defense Contract: Stock Fell

Palantir Technologies (NYSE: PLTR) stock fell over 3% in the early trading hours on Tuesday following the announcement of a contract win from the Defense Information Systems Agency (DISA) on Friday.

Palantir (PLTR) announced on Friday its selection by the Defense Information Systems Agency (DISA) for delivering an Electromagnetic Battle Management – Joint Decision Support (EMBM-J DS) Prototype. This initiative will equip the Department of Defense with advanced software for supporting Joint Electromagnetic Spectrum Operations (JEMSO). The awarded prototype Other Transaction Authority (OTA) Agreement is worth $9.8 million for a year.

Under this agreement, Palantir will collaborate closely with DISA PEO Spectrum, as well as USSTRATCOM and Combatant Commands, to facilitate advanced mission analysis, course of action (COA) development, COA analysis and scoring, wargaming, and product production. The Impact Level 6 web-based EMBM-J DS prototype will also sync with Service tools and processes for Electromagnetic Battle Management, ensuring maximum interoperability and coordination across the joint force.

Betsy Park, the program manager of EMBM-J, emphasized the significance of this technological advancement, stating,

“The ability to ingest component-level courses of action and schemes of maneuver into an overall joint plan and evaluate the associated electromagnetic spectrum opportunities and risks will be a significant technological leap forward for EMS operational planners. EMBM-J will play a critical role in ensuring that our forces are able to achieve EMS superiority across every warfighting domain.”

Dr. Miriam Marwick, the Senior Vice President of Emerging Technologies at Palantir USG, has expressed enthusiasm about their ongoing collaboration with DISA PEO Spectrum to expedite the Department of Defense’s attainment of spectrum dominance.

Marwick said,

“We have learned a great deal about the impact of electromagnetic spectrum on recent conflicts.”

She emphasized their commitment to diligently applying these insights to address the challenges of disputed battlegrounds.
