Palantir Snags $89.9M Nuclear Security Administration Contract

Shares of Palantir Technologies Inc. (NYSE: PLTR) are advancing after the data analytics software company announced a new contract win.

What Happened: Palantir said the National Nuclear Security Administration awarded it a five-year contract, valued up to $89.9 million, to provide a platform for effective knowledge management and data-driven decision making.

Palantir will serve as the platform for NNSA's safety analytics, forecasting and evaluation reporting project. The project will help NNSA to manage nuclear security by allowing it to best allocate its human and financial resources to prioritize safety.

"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," said Palantir USG President Akash Jain.
