Decentralised Satellite Infrastructure (DSI) constructs a distributed, transparent, collaborative environment for space with the features listed here.
DSI integrates blockchain and introduces open protocols to constellation governance, allowing participating satellites to join the network in an efficient and secure way. A hardware requirement is proposed that any satellites that meet the requirement can participate in the DSI.
DSI connects to the ground internet via ground stations and blockchain nodes, bringing the two networks together while maintaining the advantage of each. Blockchain capabilities extend to sandboxing, which sharply increase the security of the constellation.
The DSI development will be a long-term procedure with the revolution of spacecraft, satellite communication and networking technologies. We have divided them into its front end, the digital earth cortex (DEC), embedded backend and hardware.
