SOUTH BEND, Ind. Officials at the U.S. Air Force selected SIMBA Chain Inc. to provide its blockchain platform to securely scale the service's additive manufacturing supply chain.
SIMBA Chain is a cloud-based, blockchain-as-a-service (BaaS) platform, enabling users across a variety of skill sets to implement dapps (decentralized applications), SIMBA Chain officials state. These apps allow secure, direct connections between users and providers, eliminating third parties.
SIMBA Chain Inc. was formed in 2017 from a grant awarded by the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) to Indiana Technology and Manufacturing Companies (ITAMCO) and the Center for Research Computing at the University of Notre Dame in order to develop a secure, unhackable messaging, and transaction platform for the United States military.
