The National Aeronautics and Space Administration of the USA (NASA) has allocated a grant for the sum of $330 000 to scientists of the University of Acron under potential researches of blockchain technologies in processes of improvement of communication in space.
Doctor Jen Wei, the associate professor of computer engineering, heads the team of the scientists developing the resistant network and calculation paradigm (RNCP) for space research.
This technology will potentially allow spacecrafts to receive quicker teams from Earth and more quickly send the collected information. A blockchain development are also designed to increase efficiency of response of devices to various threats.
The team plans to start RNCP on the basis of Ethereum in a combination with use of artificial intelligence and methods of deep laerning.
RNCP will allow devices to trace effectively artificial space debris and to lay safe trajectories in order to avoid fatal collisions.
