Newsline: U.S. State Department clinches $100 mln deal to monitor health of diplomats

Palantir Technologies Inc has won a contract to sell up to $99.6 million worth of software to the U.S. Department of State for monitoring the health of the diplomatic corps, the company told Reuters ahead of a Wednesday announcement. (https://neuters.de/technology/palantir-lands-996-mln-deal-with-us-state-department-2023-03-08/) The U.S. data analytics firm said the project – Axiom – would help the Bureau of Medical Services respond faster to any health crises faced by the embassy staff and their families. The bureau has sought software to record health incidents, predict risks, manage medical-evacuation missions and handle other tasks, according to a government document. The news reflects how Palantir is aiming to secure government deals beyond the military and intelligence work central to its business, even as analysts have said such opportunities are being delayed by the U.S. budget scrutiny.
