It is with great sadness that the International Astronautical Federation informs that our colleague, Professor Amnon Ginati, passed away on Thursday 27 July after a long-term illness.
He was an active, long-term member in the IAF Community. We are thankful for his outstanding contributions to the IAF throughout the years. Most notably he was the Vice-Chair of the Committee on Integrated Applications and he was also of great support for the UN/IAF Workshop.
Amnon who worked at the European Space Agency (ESA) was an energetic and passionate person. He was very creative and capable of anticipating the evolutions of the space sector; the successful Integrated Applications Promotion (IAP) programme will always remain his legacy.
Our deepest condolences goes out to his family in this difficult time, we wish them strength and courage.
