US Air Force Partners with Constellation Network to Employ Big Data and Blockchain

Constellation Network, a San Francisco-based technology and blockchain firm, has signed a contract with the United States Air Force (USAF) as part of Phase I of the Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) program to provide rails to a solution fully integrated with Air Force constituents.

Blockchain to Handle Multitude of Data 

“It’s a match at the right time with the right partner,” agreed Benjamin Diggles, VP of Business Development at Constellation. He explained that “the USAF has a multitude of data sources like drones, planes, and satellites that need to be secured. Clean and consolidated data that can be queried instantly is a big need within the defense apparatus.”

Constellation’s technology will allow secure unlocking to traditionally siloed and non-accessible data and data sources, commonly referred to as Multi-Domain Command and Control (MDC2) at the U.S. Air Force.

In particular, Constellation’s blockchain solution will integrate the data generated from the force’s multitude of data sources such as satellites, planes, and drones.

Decentralized Feature to Enhance Security

While the blockchain-based solution streamlines data management, its features are expected unearth more benefits to the U.S. Air Force.

Blockchain technology will also encrypt data, thereby increasing the level of security. Additionally, blockchain will enable the U.S. Air Force to have a real-time access to data and reliable audit trails.

Apart from the Constellation contract, the US Air Force also signed a deal with SIMBA Chain to develop a blockchain prototype dubbed BASECAMP.
