Distributed Ledger Technology (DLT) is making its way to the U.S. Air Force with a recent commercial partnership, reports CoinDesk.

Blockchain firm Constellation yesterday announced a partnership with the U.S. Air Force to help automate the armed force branch’s big data management. According to a statement from Constellation, data sources like drones, planes, and satellites present unique use-cases for DLT. Constellation helps secure data silos from traditionally locked sources.

Termed Multi-Domain Command and Control by the U.S. Air Force, Constellation is tasked with connecting various data silos for the armed force wing, thereby improving interoperability. The firm will also provide audit trails and real-time overviews of data sources.

“Currently, the data lifecycle is very broken with data storage being siloed while data creation, management, and hygiene is a semi-manual process,” Constellations Mathias Goldman told CoinDesk. “The USAF is looking to automate much of their big data initiatives in a secure manner.”

Constellation’s job is to build systems between creation, storage, and management for future decision making. The platform allows users to manage downstream data flows with encryption, according to the statement.

Constellation says the partnership began six months ago with the U.S. Air Force asking if the firm was interested in participating.

The type of metadata Constellation will work with on its platform has yet to be chosen.
