IoT-driven Blockchain to Be Adopted for Aviation Maintenance

IoT-driven Blockchain

As Internet of Things (IoT) continues to grow, it is finding more and more applications and technology integrations.

This cAs Internet of Things (IoT) continues to grow, it is finding more and more applications and technology integrations. IBM’s IoT platform, Watson, now comes integrated with blockchain, which enable recording each participant’s activity. This can help in automating processes without the need of a centralized structure. This innovative combination being lauded by the aviation geeks, who believe that that the same pattern can be applied to aircraft operation and processes as well. Specifically, manufacturing, maintenance and part lifecycle tracking, could be the primary arenas to be benefitted by the technology.

Boeing’s R. Rechner, a couple of months back, mentioned how they are witnessing opportunity in IoT driven blockchains to boost the aircraft ecosystem. He believes that operational efficiency can be achieved, right form asset management to customer transparency, through the use of this technology. Each step in the lifecycle of an aircraft involves a number of individual parts, and keeping records of each condition is a challenge. IoT driven blockchains could aid in unplanned maintenance costs and in the reduction of outages. With the use of IoT blockchains, the aircraft manufacturer keeps a complete history of each component. A recently release video by IBM showcases how flight operations such as system and flight operations performance monitoring, could benefit original equipment manufacturers and maintenance and regulatory bodies at the same time.
