Synchronizing Foundational Blockchain With Satellite Technology

Wow. My col­league Rebec­ca has done a tremen­dous job! She leads the Datarel­la team that came up with this first mile­stone for our Track & Trust project with the Euro­pean Space Agency ESA.

Togeth­er with ESA, we want to find out how satel­lite data can be used to facil­i­tate last mile track­ing of sup­ply chains in remote areas. Often, aid deliv­ery can be tracked until the goods reach an inter­im stor­age facil­i­ty in a des­ti­na­tion coun­try.

From there they have to be deliv­ered hun­dreds or thou­sands of miles to their final des­ti­na­tion, often in remote areas with­out a func­tion­al logis­tics infra­struc­ture, power or inter­net con­nec­tion. Aid agen­cies face a tough chal­lenge to track and trfe their goods until they have reached the ben­e­fi­cia­ries.

With the sup­port of satel­lite data we are envi­sion­ing a last mile Track & Trust ser­vice that solves this chal­lenge. This very entic­ing sym­bio­sis of the foun­da­tion­al blockchain tech­nol­o­gy and space tech­nol­o­gy is one of the most fas­ci­nat­ing projects we hve ever worked on.
