Kratos Defense & Security Solutions said this week it will serve as the founding member of the Space Information Sharing and Analysis Center, unveiled during a classified session at this week's Space Symposium in Colorado Springs, CO.

"To facilitate the Space ISAC's origination and organization as the founding member, Kratos has coordinated the organizational planning and federal government charter, funded the Space ISAC startup costs, and developed the operational plan for the Space ISAC," the company said. "Kratos will continue to provide leadership within the Space ISAC and will recruit other industry-focused companies and organizations to build a robust Space ISAC membership."

The Space ISAC will be housed within the National Cybersecurity Center in Colorado Springs, Kratos added.

"Its mission will be to facilitate collaboration across the global space industry to enhance our ability to prepare for and respond to vulnerabilities, incidents, and threats; to disseminate timely and actionable information among member firms; and to serve as the primary communications channel for the sector with respect to this information," the company said. "The NCC will begin to offer the Space ISAC training on secure GPS as early as May 2019."
