Palantir Technologies, a leading data analytics company, is excited to announce the release of Palantir Skykit, which is a fully disconnected intelligence center giving soldiers an advantage over adversaries by allowing them access AI technology wirelessly from distressed places.
Palantir Skykit aims to empower soldiers to effectively integrate their data, make decisions, and carry out operations from remote places using the Palantir software which allows users to task and analyze data from anywhere. The Skykit will be released soon at Customer Experience Show 2023. The company has released a YouTube video of the product before the launch.
Skykit has its own secure satellite communications, which means soldiers can access satellite internet for communication from distressed areas. The kit has a ruggedized laptop with pre-installed Palantir intelligence platform software to generate insights from sensitive military data.

It also has a Quadcopter drone, which runs computer vision algorithms via Palantir AI interface platform, to detect any peculiarities from the surroundings. Moreover, the kit includes Trailcam Nano, which is a detachable small camera that also searches the surroundings using detection algorithms.
Skykit is built for disconnected adverse, hostile, and extreme environments to harness the power of AI running onboard. Skykit contains dual integrated monitors, onboard battery packs to power the entire unit for a day fully disconnected, and a secure storage area for the included devices.
Palantir AI interface platform powers the computer vision algorithms to be deployed onboard to send detections from the drone and Trailcan Nano directly to the base station for decision making.
Skykit has a modular design with variants for various use cases. For example, model Skykit L is the lightweight backpack form factor, whereas Skykit S is for sea and maritime use.
