Blockchain represents a ready-to-use framework to distribute information, record changes and agree, by consensus, upon the global state of represented things. Blockchain systems can be equipped with a layer that can model the business logic in a pre-programmed and automated way. This is achieved through the use of smart contracts, that are computer programs stored on a blockchain and visible to all participants. Smart contracts represent digital assets that can be triggered upon met pre-conditions. They can be used to represent the various items of the MBSE domain such as requirements, system engineers, missions, spacecrafts and subsystems. Creating digital twins of these components along with their representation as assets in the blockchain enables multitude of use cases for flexible automation and integration in various workflows. This papers illustrate an innovation prototype in implementation; Exochain, a blockchain approach to MBSE.
