Thales, a French multinational company specializing in products and services for the aviation and defense industries, is using blockchain technology for a new control system at its production center in Spain.
Thales is committed to distributing technologies such as blockchain and big data to digitize defense and aviation production and service centers, according to an official announcement on November 5.
As part of this initiative, the Paris-based company is seeking to meet NATO and defense standards using blockchain to improve downtown traceability. Ad text:
“In line with the standards of NATO and the defense ministries with which the company works, the blockchain will be used to ensure that all parts and products that are processed in the production and services center can be traceable.”
According to the announcement, the blockchain will be part of a new management system linked to all the applications currently in use on the network. The new platform is expected to efficiently connect all operations and improve customer experience and maintenance processes.
The report notes that radio, aviation and marine communications equipment will be among the products that will have this new control system.
In recent years, Thales has experimented with blockchain to improve business efficiency. In 2018, he teamed up with large consultancy Accenture to modernize air supply chains using the blockchain.
Thales did not immediately respond to Cointelegraph’s request for comment.
