The grad school for the United States Air Force just developed a tool to help supply chain professionals learn about blockchain. The US Air Force Institute of Technology (AFIT) released its free tool in hopes of advancing the current infrastructure built around supply chain management.

This news was released by the US business journal Modern Materials Handling (MMH) back on December 3rd.

US Air Force and Blockchain Technology

AFIT has put together a live application that is paired with a set of video tutorials. This application can be accessed from any smartphone or computer. AFIT built it in hopes that the tutorials and module would be used in a classroom or business meeting setting, as well as for individual use.

When blockchain emerged into the mainstream tech scene in 2017, supply chain was one of the hot topics surrounding the new tech. While the blockchain is anything but new, it didn’t start catching big eyes until the last few years.

The report by MMH emphasizes that even some experts have predicted that blockchain will revolutionize the way we think about “designing and operating the digital infrastructure of supply chains.” The US Air Force grad school deciding to take on this task must mean it sees flaws in its own supply chain system. Blockchain technology could provide the military with better visibility into extremely complex logistic networks.

With the US Air Force being deployed everywhere, it can be difficult to track parts that are sourced from one region and then assembled and used on a completely different continent. While this sounds like a no-brainer, blockchain technology can be difficult to understand for most. That’s the exact reason why AFIT built this module and live application.

It remains unknown if the Department of Defense will utilize blockchain technology in the near future for supply chain, but it’s a step in the right direction.
