Lockheed Martin to Utilize Guardtime Federal’s Blockchain Tech

The companies will focus on further reducing the attack surface of the information supply chain that forwards information to and from operational aircraft systems

Lockheed Martin is expanding its work with Guardtime Federal to integrate a variety of integrity and cyber-related capabilities into Lockheed Martin aircraft products and processes. 

The new contract builds on specialized mission support testing in 2015, and the integration systems and support contract related to supply chain risk and software development management in 2017. This time the focus is on further reducing the attack surface of the information supply chain that forwards information to and from operational aircraft systems.

"At Guardtime Federal we continue to appreciate the support Lockheed Martin has provided to allow us to focus on Cyber Integrity. Our goal is to provide every Soldier, Sailor, Airman, and Marine the confidence that they can rely on the information they see and the equipment they operate without fear that it has been manipulated by an outside force," said David Hamilton, president of Guardtime Federal. "There is no overnight solution, but this is the objective of our work with Lockheed who shares our 'Cyber Integrity First' core value."

Guardtime Federal’s technology is based on Blockchain.
