About BlocBox

BlocBox will collect and encrypt information that is stored locally within safety instruments installed on ships and airplanes. The encrypted data will then be transmitted to the BlocBox protocol for storage and future retrieval, significantly decreasing response time in the event of a disaster.

Problem & Solution

A key factor in reducing the rate of maritime incidences falls onto the collection and review of data retrieved from ships involved. High quality data would also assist in post-incident remediation, particularly with regards to insurance claims and processes. As a result, the Maritime Safety Committee, formed by the International Maritime Organization, made it a requirement for all sea vessels to have a Voyage Data Recorder (VDR) onboard. The VDR is an instrument installed onto a ship that continuously records vital information related to the operations of a vessel. These records are stored locally on the device for a period of 12 hours and are continuously overwritten by new input. However, in major incidences, the challenge in data retrieval is mostly due to the difficulty in retrieving the VDR.

Problem

Voyage & Flight Data Recorders

Lack of availability and extraction of real time data

Recovery of safety instrument is costly

Recovery and extracting of data is very time consuming

Lack of analysis on existing data for enhanced training as data is constantly being overwritten

Different safety instrument manufacturers store data in different formats

Solution

BlocBox Recorder & BlocBox Protocol

Timeless - No time lost for access to data

Cost Effective - Negligible cost to access data

Decentralised Storage - Secure and tamper proof

Dispute Resolution - Assist interested parties in investigation

Data Formats - Uniform shore retrival data formats

BlocBox Analytics - For IoT streaming content analysis
