Voyager Space and Palantir team up
On February 8, Voyager Space announced the signing of a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) and teaming agreement with Palantir USG, Inc., focused on exploring and enhancing national security capabilities in the commercial space domain.
Palantir provides adaptable software solutions and architectures to ensure the resilience, effectiveness, and availability of U.S. defense and space capabilities. The collaboration between Voyager and Palantir will center around the joint exploration of cutting-edge Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Machine Learning (ML) capabilities, aimed towards technology demonstration missions on the International Space Station and the future Starlab commercial space station.
“This strategic collaboration signifies a major milestone in harnessing the combined expertise of Voyager and Palantir to elevate space domain security,” said Marshall Smith, CTO of Voyager. “We are thrilled to collaborate with Palantir, exploring a diverse range of technologies and applications as we operate in a commercial space ecosystem.”
As part of the agreement, Voyager and Palantir will explore the integration of Palantir’s AI / ML and edge processing capabilities to support Starlab station development, manufacture, and future operations. Sample use cases include space domain awareness (SDA), data fusion, and processing at the edge to enable autonomous decisions and secure collaboration with Allies.
This alliance represents a shared commitment to advancing the frontiers of global commerce, civil, and national security capabilities, reaffirming the critical role industry has to bring leading-edge technology to the evolving landscape of space exploration and security,” said Shyam Sankar, CTO of Palantir. “The opportunity to partner with Voyager will set the stage for collaboration across the ecosystem of leading technology firms dedicated to this mission.”
The collaboration extends beyond the two companies, as both parties will actively identify opportunities for cooperation with other national security stakeholders. This includes government agencies, working groups, commercial partners, or partner nations, such as NATO or Five Eyes countries.
