The recently established United States Space Force or USSF and the United States Air Force Research Laboratory They chose the blockchain company Xage Security to develop data security systems.
It is a statement Xage Security announced that it has won an order to provide comprehensive data protection for the USSF. The company will use your solution Blockchain-based “Xage Security Fabric” for this project.
That’s what the company said Xage Security Fabric has a unified platform that can secure all systems and eliminate individual entry points so that hackers cannot steal any information. It will activate the USSF Check who is accessing your systems, make sure the satellites are working safely even if devices on the ground go offline, and protect the data until it is fully transmitted to the control units.
This is the second contract Xage Security has received from the United States Air Force. after the first signed in December last year.
The USSF was founded in December 2019 to defend space and acquire military space systems. According to the University of Illinois, Space systems are infrastructures and vehicles that work together to perform tasks in space. This could be Satellites or even spaceships. Since many space systems rely heavily on communication and geographic positioning, It is important that the data sent is not compromised.
The CEO of Xage Security, Duncan Greatwood, He said the blockchain fulfills many of the complex needs of the USSF:
“USSF needs a decentralized security application to ensure spatial resilience and objective situational awareness for every asset and data element. We developed the Xage solution to meet the requirements of complex critical infrastructure systems. And we are pleased with the Xage solution in the form of a protected blockchain for the security of space systems to the Space Force. “
The U.S. Department of Defense, which oversees all branches of the military, including the Air Force and the USSF, has been interested in blockchain technology for some time.. In March of this year, the Indiana-based blockchain company received an award. Simba Chain, a contract to ensure the security of sensitive research and development data. The Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) has also been involved in the blockchain since 2019.
