WHAT IS SPACE INDUSTRY FOR UKRAINE (SIFU)? 

In response to Russia's brutal invasion of Ukraine in February 2022, leaders of the space community–key players in defense, national security space, and cutting-edge technology–rallied together to announce a new initiative, SIFU, intended to address the most immediate humanitarian needs in-country.

 

Spearheaded by NSSA Executive Director, Steve Jacques, and CEO of HawkEye 360, John Serafini, SIFU was established to fund and execute high-value projects that create maximum impact with minimal overhead. 

With millions still in need of humanitarian support this winter, our work is far from over.
