The U.S. military's main battlefield intelligence processor, so crucial to the war in Afghanistan, still lacks an element common to civilian computer networks — a cloud.
"Palantir does, we estimate, 8 to 10 percent of the functions that are required by DCGS, and what I would tell you is that right now we have soldiers using it in Afghanistan," Gen. Greene said. "We have a cooperative research and development agreement with the Palantir Corp. looking at how we can leverage the technologies that they have. And we're about to conduct an assessment of link analysis tools."
Army Maj. Gen. Harold Greene, deputy for acquisition and systems management, told Fox News that Palantir performs only about 10 percent of the functions of D-Sigs.
