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.
