Mr. Kasper said the Navy has not answered how the ban was put in place since outside MMA instructors did receive contracts.
"It's the Army bureaucracy that's standing in the way," Mr. Kasper said. "It's unfortunate that it might take a court to give soldiers what they want and what they're asking for and compel changes to the Army's entire software acquisition system. The Army is working overtime to re-create Palantir at the expense of the soldiers and the taxpayer. They haven't done it yet, despite billions spent and years wasted, and they won't be able to."
