AGI Technology as a Framework for Broad Systems Analysis

Mr. Peter Aves

Thursday, Oct 4, 2012 at 10:30 AM to 12:00 PM

Nguyen Engineering building, Room 4801


AGI develops modeling and analysis software for the space, defense and intelligence communities. Used by more than 40,000 engineers, operators and analysts worldwide, AGI software enables complex aerospace/ ground/sea systems to be modeled through internal models and multiple APIs allowing independently develop-ed models and code to be interfaced with AGI technology, and interoperability with other analysis and modeling tools.

AGI technology is used to model complex systems (aircraft, satellite, ground vehicles), along with their sensors and communications, radars, and flight paths in the context of the mission environment. Through integrated visualization, AGI brings a clear understanding of system behavior and performance measured against mission objectives. The core technology is built on a high fidelity geometry engine and additional modules bringing: System performance analysis; Aircraft and UAV modeling; Missile modeling; Ground facility modeling; Terrain and cityscape modeling; Sensor modeling; Antenna modeling; Weather and atmospheric effects; Communication link analysis; Radar analysis; Imagery and map data; Real-time data feeds; Conjunction analysis; Maneuver modeling; Orbit trajectory modeling; Orbit determination; Rendezvous and proximity operations; and Spacecraft design and operations.


PETER AVES is AGI's Director of Business Development for South America and ISR Systems, and Director of Partners and Alliances for AGI, focusing on partnerships to further AGI's technical offering into the ISR market domestically and worldwide, with focus on South America. Previous positions at AGI include BD Director of UAVs and Director for New Markets covering Wind Power and Inflight Entertainment. Prior to AGI, Peter worked as Director for BD at QinetiQ and AmSafe. Peter is a Graduate of University of Wales (Engineering) and University of London, with a PhD in Geophysics.
