Blockchain solution SIMBA May Become A Strategic Solution For The USA And Its Partners

Two weeks ago, Australia’s Flinders University and SIMBA Chain grew closer via an MOU (Memorandum Of Understanding) targeting future research.

At the time of signing, the lead executive at SIMBA stated that, as a platform built by the University of Notre Dame and ITAMCO, SIMBA would like to help not just the USA, but it’s strategic partners in NATO and The Five Eyes as well.

Boeing Beaten By Blockchain

Following their participation in the Advanced Manufacturing Olympics that took place between the 20th and 23rd of October – a competition held by the US Department of Defense as a way to find innovative solutions for military manufacturing and communications – SIMBA won first place in one of the technical challenges.

Taking home USD 100,000 – and beating Boeing and Stratasys – SIMBA focused on blockchain-secured communication networks between fictional factories producing wartime material.


The challenge required competitors to find more efficient ways of getting supplies to soldiers and paramedics fighting on a fictional island under siege.

Joel Neidig – the CEO of SIMBA – explained the approach taken by SIMBA and what differentiated his company from the competition.

“We […] had six days to put together an entire war games solution to deliver critical parts to a battlefront, keep field hospitals operational and infrastructure like runways intact. What was different about our approach was how we met both the physical challenges of war fighters as well as the cyber threats that are playing a growing role in modern warfare.”

Using blockchain as a way to guarantee quality standards in 3D printing and mining – as well as guaranteeing against tampering with the materials in transit, sabotaging the war effort – SIMBA stood out and proved once again the many qualities of blockchain.
