Securing Additive Manufacturing

SIMBA Chain has been chosen to help the U.S. Air Force with Additive Manufacturing efforts on the battlefield and at home. With SIMBA, the Air Force’s BASECAMP project will be able to decentralize Additive Manufacturing in the field while maintaining the integrity of data.

Securing Additive Manufacturing

The United States Air Force (USAF) has a complex supply chain to equip and repair forward-deployed forces. SIMBA Chain will play a key role in securing that chain.

The USAF has a couple main goals it is trying to achieve with blockchain:

  • Make its data more tamper-proof
  • Secret 3D printing plans transmission

Long value chains are among the biggest security issue in manufacturing for Industry 4.0. This is the case for all manufacturing but is especially critical in military applications, where hostile entities would attempt to obtain or modify critical data.

To close security loopholes, the  Air Force launched the Blockchain Approach for Supply Chain Additive Manufacturing Parts (BASECAMP) project to coordinate distributed manufacturing in the battlefield.

SIMBA uses Microsoft’s Azure cloud platform which delivers trust and reliability, critical factors when providing battlefield support.

BASECAMP will be able to decentralize Additive Manufacturing in the field while maintaining data integrity.

SIMBA Chain will be used to register and track additive manufacturing components during their entire lifecycle.
