Voyager Space, a space exploration company, has announced a strategic partnership with Palantir Technologies, an artificial intelligence (AI) systems enterprise. Together, Voyager and Palantir will rapidly advance the space and defense technology sectors by integrating Palantir's cutting-edge AI tools across the Voyager enterprise.

This partnership solidifies Voyager's commitment to leading the space industry in AI-driven innovation, ensuring robust and agile solutions for defense and commercial applications. Expanding on a previous Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) announced earlier this year, Voyager will now fully integrate Palantir's AI capabilities into their defense solutions, benefiting from Palantir's deep expertise delivering for the Department of Defense (DoD). This collaboration enhances communications, military research and development, as well as intelligence and space research, making space more accessible to the defense community and vice versa.

Voyager will leverage Palantir Foundry and the Artificial Intelligence Platform (AIP) to drive value in its in-house payload management system for International Space Station customers today, as well as onboard the Starlab commercial space station in the future. It is also building a prototype "Customer Hub" for its customers to submit payload requests via Palantir's software.

The partnership also bolsters Voyager's defense segment, offering the opportunity to use AI to process and optimize flight and testing data on solid fuel thrusters to ensure smooth flight. Palantir's software can also help power increased real time signal data processing and more precise targeting for Voyager's optical communications systems for DoD customers.

Today's news builds on the recently announced partnership between Starlab Space and Palantir. As Voyager continues to embrace the benefits of AI alongside Palantir, both companies are poised to lead the defense and space industry into a new era of innovation.
