Palantir Technologies Inc. (NYSE:PLTR) today announced the U.S. Coast Guard has extended its commitment to use Palantir’s software to help it respond to the COVID-19 pandemic.
The Coast Guard has been using Palantir’s software since April 2020 as the data management, analytics, and operations tool for its response to the pandemic. This contract renewal has a base value of $6.25 million and a potential total amount of $11.25 million for nine months.
Palantir’s software enables centralized collaboration of workspaces across the country, offering real-time visibility into critical data for Coast Guard members anywhere, across ranks, to make informed and risk-based decisions.

“Palantir is proud to help enhance Coast Guard readiness, and keep their staff and families safe. We look forward to continuing to provide the Coast Guard with the very best technology to help them ensure our Nation's maritime safety and security,” said Doug Philippone, Palantir’s Global Defense Lead.
