Multi-echelon supply chain visibility. Configuration management. Quality. Authenticating supply. Certification of people and machines. Software lifecycle management.
These are a very few of the challenges that Aerospace and Defense companies are addressing in an industry naturally characterized by complex products, deep supply chains, and a decades-long aftermarket with multiple, often shifting, participants. Significant investment, effort, and technology have yielded great progress in these areas, but the need for continued industry growth and efficiency demands more. Blockchain stands out as a technology in which Aerospace and Defense leaders see potential to solve these challenges.
