ICAO, Block Aero, and the humanitarian aviation community have collaborated to bring a new solution that will help aviation crisis response and disaster risk reduction using the latest developments in ICAO API web services and Block Aero blockchain technologies. Under a framework for mutual areas of cooperation the following objectives are to be achieved:
Block Aero is using its expertise and best practices in blockchain to build a solution for securing and managing data. Open-source protocol Hyperledger Fabric is used for collecting, validating, and distributing data blocks.
In the aftermath of a disaster, aviation stakeholders may not be prepared to accommodate a large number of flights and handle considerably more cargo than during normal operations. This problem is of particular significance when infrastructure and services are degraded which is common during a crisis. In addition, information flows between the aviation and humanitarian communities are not always established to guarantee the optimized use of available airport capacity. It leads to inefficiencies, disorganization, and delays.
With the implementation of a blockchain solution, all the role-, validation-, timeliness-, and standardization-related issues are resolved, creating a seamless cooperation between multiple stakeholders under predefined rules. We can also avoid any confusion regarding the source, validity and authenticity of the data.
With appropriate implementation of combination of blockchain / AI / web 3.0 technology the following results are achieved:
Here is what ICAO has to say about our solution:
