Constellation a blockchain firm recently announced that it has partnered with the U.S. Air Force to automate the armed force’s big data management. According to the announcement, data sources like drones, planes, and satellites present unique use-cases for DLT. The firm aims to help secure data silos from traditionally locked sources. However, the Distributed Ledger Technology (DLT) is making its way to the U.S. Air Force
Constellation will be connecting several data silos for the armed force wing, also improving interoperability. The company will also be providing audit trails and real-time overviews of data sources.
Mathias Goldmann, Vice President of Finance, Constellation said:
“Currently, the data lifecycle is very broken with data storage being siloed while data creation, management, and hygiene is a semi-manual process. The USAF is looking to automate much of their big data initiatives in a secure manner.”
According to the announcement, the firm will be building systems between creation, storage, and management for future decision making. The platform allows users to manage downstream data flows with encryption. The partnership was formed six months ago with the U.S. Air Force checking if the firm was interested in participating.
