US Navy Awards $9.5M To SIMBA Chain To Secure Messages On Blockchain Tech For The DoD

  • SIMBA Chain awarded a $10 million contract to develop a secure decentralized messaging solution for the U.S. Navy.
  • This is the first and largest SBIR phase III fully dedicated to Blockchain Solutions.

SIMBA Chain was awarded a 5 year Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Phase III contract, at close to $10 million, by the Naval Air Warfare Center. The SBIR phase III contract is non-competitive and carries a non-compete clause, as announced by the U.S. Navy Blockchain solutions firm.

Secure Decentralized messaging solution

They have been tasked to develop a secure decentralized messaging solution for the Naval Forces. The platform is to be used to service the Navy’s crucial communication capabilities over its land and sea assets. The project is set to improve communications among its stakeholders while providing a secure environment under which they would share confidential materials.

To be developed on the Microsoft Azure cloud platform as Simba chain CEO, Joel Neidig, stated;

“We plan to deliver a ‘bulletproof’ platform that meets all objectives.”

He also expressed his excitement at the opportunity to work with the DOD who he congratulated for prioritizing the platform that would be essential for their operations. He also promised that the platform would be deployed this year with a series of updates over the course of the next 4 years.

“This is a win not just for SIMBA and our partners, but also for the DoD, which has pursued with single-minded focus, a solution to conduct sensitive, mission-critical operations in a manner that is immutable and non-refutable. We plan to deliver a ‘bulletproof’ platform that meets all objectives.”

Previous DOD partnerships

This is notably not the first time that Simba Chain has worked with the DoD. In August last year, they were contracted by United States Air Force (USAF) to secure their supply chain. They set out to develop a tamper-proof Blockchain prototype for tracking additive manufacturing components over the course of their lifecycle. Last September they also worked with the US Navy on tracking Aircraft parts using blockchain technology. They’ve also worked on the current platform DOD is using during the building and testing phase in an earlier SBIR contract.
