Palantir and Lockheed Martin said that they will collaborate to deliver software for the Navy’s combat systems.
The collaboration focuses on driving innovation and working closely with the U.S. Navy to modernize its combat systems for the surface fleet. The duo will use Palantir’s platform, Apollo, because it enables autonomous deployment. It also allows developers to write and deploy software that includes the application’s requirements and enables teams to work closely on software asynchronously. Apollo then enables DevOps, security teams, and operators the ability to scale and deliver innovation rapidly, all while dev teams can get real-time feedback and performance reporting.
“Lockheed Martin is investing in skills, capabilities, tools and infrastructure to deliver mission critical capabilities to the warfighter efficiently and affordably,” said Joe DePietro, Vice President & General Manager for Naval Combat & Missile Defense Systems at Lockheed Martin.
“Palantir was built to solve the world’s most difficult problems with truly best-in-class, cutting-edge technology. We believe that, by sharing our approach through the Apollo product, more customers can take advantage of the Autonomous Deployment approach,” said Palantir COO Shyam Sankar.
Lockheed Martin and Palantir have come together to solve some of the most complex challenges that arise in the rapid and secure delivery of software to where it’s needed most in heterogeneous environments.
