AGI and ANSYS to Streamline Hypersonic Weapon Defense System Design and Integration

Analytical Graphics (AGI) and ANSYS have come together to engineer the U.S. military’s next-generation missile defense system. They are incorporating high-fidelity, multiphysics simulations with multi-domain mission-level modeling into early stages of missile defense system development - effectively enabling warfighters to combat high-speed, highly maneuverable hypersonic weapons. 

The U.S. Department of Defense (DoD) has made counter-hypersonics a priority. To rapidly find, track and eliminate these threats, systems for missile defense and their related command and control infrastructure must be upgraded and fully interconnected. High-fidelity, multiphysics engineering simulation is needed early in the design cycle to conduct critical architectural and mission analysis. 

To satisfy this urgent national security need, AGI has embedded ANSYS’ high-fidelity, physics-based component models within its own expansive, multi-domain mission-level modeling. Providing an integrated system across key engineering and mission analyses will eliminate problematic engineering bottlenecks. Physics-based solvers expedite missile defense system development by more accurately predicting communication blackouts, forecasting vehicle trajectory, and altitude control, calculating thermal field effects on antenna performance, and analyzing other scenarios. 

AGI and ANSYS discussed their ability to incorporate high-fidelity, multiphysics engineering simulation into mission-level modeling at the Space and Missile Defense Symposium in Huntsville, Ala.
