In the shadow of a conflict that has stretched over two years, and a struggle for independence spanning a decade, a new glimmer of hope emerges on the horizon. Enter Aurora Frontline Aid, a freshly minted organisation armed with technology, expertise, and an unwavering commitment to support Ukraine's defense against the Russian invasion.

A Mission Born from Adversity

Two years ago, Vladimir Putin launched what he envisaged as a three-day military escapade against Ukraine. Fast forward to the present, and Ukraine's valiant defense of its sovereignty is still going strong, thanks in no small part to the support of organizations like Aurora Frontline Aid.

Founded by a team of professionals who have been in the trenches (figuratively and literally) supporting the Ukrainian Defense since 2022, Aurora stands out for its focus on delivering FPV drones, jammers, and other high-tech gear right to the frontlines—where precision and innovation can turn the tide of battle.

The Arsenal of Aid

Aurora's arsenal is not just about hardware; it's about delivering solutions that make a difference. With an initial delivery of USD 45k worth of drone components to frontline units, the organization is just warming up. The goal is clear: to supply the Ukrainian forces with the tools they need to defend their country more efficiently and effectively.

The precision of these drones and jammers is not just a tactical advantage; it's a necessity. In a conflict where ammunition can be scarce and help not always timely, the ability to strike with accuracy is invaluable. Aurora's tech is already proving its worth, pinpointing Russian positions with lethal accuracy and ensuring that every shot counts.

Who Are the Faces Behind Aurora?

Aurora Frontline Aid's strength lies not only in its mission but in the diverse and dedicated team behind it. Led by Tord Strømdal, a project manager and enterprise architect with a deep commitment to Ukraine's defense, the organization's founding members bring a wealth of experience and a shared dedication to seeing Ukraine prevail.

  • Tord Strømdal, the founder, has been a staunch supporter of Ukraine since the full-scale invasion began. His leadership and vision have been pivotal in Aurora's formation and direction.
  • Lee Lambert, co-founder, and primary frontline resource, has been hands-on in Ukraine, transitioning from humanitarian aid to military support, embodying the spirit of versatility and dedication that defines Aurora.
  • James Phipps, co-founder, is a cybersecurity expert with a prolific background in UAV platform development and flight operations. A closet inventor in his spare time.
  • Leif Nixon, co-founder, is recognized in Sweden for his work in information security, focusing on cybersecurity, network protection, and addressing the challenges of Russia and hybrid warfare.
  • Johan Felixsson, co-founder, actively involved in Ukrainian aid since May 2022 with a background in military export control and R&D. His interests lie in cats, swing dance, high explosives, and a notable dislike for the Nissan Navara.

A Call to Arms: The FPV Community

As Aurora Frontline Aid continues to deliver vital equipment to the frontlines, the organisation is preparing to extend its reach further by calling upon the FPV (First-Person View) drone community. In the coming times, Aurora will seek assistance with parts and building skills from drone builders and enthusiasts who are willing to contribute their expertise to support Ukraine's defense efforts.

This initiative represents a unique opportunity for the FPV community to directly impact the ongoing conflict by providing not just the equipment but also the knowledge and skills necessary to maintain and operate these critical technologies. Aurora's call to arms is not just a request for help; it's an invitation to be part of a cause that transcends borders and unites individuals in support of freedom and sovereignty.

The Road Ahead

As Aurora Frontline Aid launches into action, its mission is clear: to equip Ukraine's defenders with the tools they need to protect their homeland.
