The US Air Force Research Lab and the United States Space Force (USSF) have chosen blockchain firm Xage Security to develop data security systems.

It has been reported in a statement that Xage Security said it was awarded a contract to provide end-to-end data protection for the USSF, as the company will employ its blockchain-based Xage Security Fabric solution for the project.

However, the company said that Xage Security Fabric has a unified platform that can secure all systems and removes single points of entry so hackers can’t wipe information.

It will allow the USSF to verify who accesses systems, ensure satellites continue to function securely even if ground equipment goes offline, and protect data until fully transferred to operational units.

The report said that this is the second contract Xage Security won from the US Air Force after the first one signed in December 2019.

As per the report, the USSF was established in December last year to defend space and acquire military space systems.

According to the University of Illinois, space systems are infrastructure and vehicles that work together to perform outer space tasks. These can be satellites or even spaceships.

Duncan Greatwood, the CEO of Xage Security, said that blockchain meets many of the complex needs of the USSF.

He added:

“The USSF requires decentralized enforcement of security to establish space domain resilience and objective situational awareness––across every asset and data element. We built the Xage solution to serve the needs of complex critical infrastructure systems, and are excited to bring the Xage solution to the Space Force in the form of a blockchain-protected space system security.”

Thus, the US Department of Defense, which oversees all military branches including the Air Force and the USSF, has been interested in blockchain for a while.
