Starlab Space, the U.S.-led venture across Voyager Space, Airbus, Mitsubishi Corporation and MDA Space, announced Palantir Technologies as a strategic partner. Palantir will become the exclusive supplier of enterprise-wide software data management solutions for the Starlab commercial space station.

Palantir's AI-driven software enables analysts, users, and decision-makers alike to optimize the entirety of space architecture. Palantir helps deliver cutting-edge, adaptable software solutions from the ground to the edge – helping ensure space capabilities are maximally resilient, effective, and accessible,

Starlab Space and Palantir will leverage data modeling through digital twins and AI technologies to enhance Starlab's operations throughout the enterprise. The Starlab digital twin will optimize resource allocation, mission planning, and overall system performance, reducing operational costs and streamlining on-board operations for the Starlab crews. Using Palantir's technology, Starlab will be able to identify potential issues and predict maintenance, helping extend the lifespan of critical components. Ground Predictive Processing will also optimize on-board research by modeling the microgravity environment and completing pre-launch analysis.

The partnership follows Starlab's recent expansion to include MDA Space, integrating its industry-leading robotics capabilities and extending the joint venture's international consortium of strategic and high-profile companies with flight heritage and proven experience, including Voyager Space, Airbus, and Mitsubishi Corporation. The U.S., European, Japanese, and Canadian partners enable their continuation of the International Space Station partner network via commercial entities.

In addition to the joint venture partners, Starlab Space has a strategic teaming agreement with Northrop Grumman, a design and experience partnership with Hilton Hotels, and has secured a launch contract with SpaceX for its Starship vehicle.
