Digital Mission Engineering

Digital Mission Engineering Solutions from AGI, an Ansys Company

Digital mission engineering, pioneered by AGI, combines digital modeling, simulation, testing, and analysis to evaluate mission outcomes at every phase of a system’s life cycle. Evaluate the full effect of each change you make and find problems before they become crises. Explore hypotheses about uncertain capabilities so that you can literally plan for the unknown. With digital mission engineering software, you can measure the performance of a system in its operational context from the very first sketch to the final prototype.

When you combine our market-leading, physics-based simulation engines with AGI’s digital mission engineering software, you can extend your analysis to every phase of the project life cycle — concept, development, deployment, operations, and sustainment.

Digital Mission Engineering

Ansys 2022 R1 adds an array of new features and performance improvements for analyzing and visualizing complex systems in the context of your mission in STK, including:

  • Expanded rendezvous and proximity operations (RPO) capabilities
    STK raises the bar for modeling RPO, adding new curvilinear calculation objects that you can use to compute quantities that are more naturally consistent with a given orbit than previously possible in STK. 
  • FMI/FMU compatibility plugin
    STK introduces a plugin enabling you to integrate with Ansys physics solvers through FMUs, so you can create a mission simulation that accounts for dynamical characteristics of mechanical, electronic, and fluids subsystems.  
  • Ansys Discovery CAD to STK
    STK includes a plugin to Ansys Discovery and Ansys SpaceClaim that provides a seamless method for converting detailed CAD models into the glTF format preferred for STK. You can even imbue these converted models with additional features such as sensor attachment points, steerable elements, and articulations. 
  • Modeling large constellations
    You can now use a satellite collection to represent an entire constellation of satellites as a single object in STK to provide basic visualization, a minimal memory footprint, and efficient save and load operations.

Digital Transformation and MBSE: Leveraging Solutions For the Future

Aerospace and defense organizations recognize that formalizing the development, integration, and use of models to inform program decisions is essential for true digital transformation. This webinar teaches how your organization can use Ansys solutions to achieve a connected digital thread through model-based systems engineering (MBSE).

Ansys

Enabling MBSE and Simulation Data Management

In this webinar, we’ll discuss the critical capabilities of Ansys Minerva and Ansys ModelCenter as they relate to managing simulation data, automating multi-tool processes, and unifying the digital ecosystem. In addition, we’ll demonstrate how they address challenges related to data democratization, digital thread traceability, and requirements validation.

Exploring Emergent Behavior in your Mission Simulation

This webinar will explain how Ansys ModelCenter’s Behavior Execution Engine (BEE) provides a mechanism to incorporate behavioral modeling alongside other simulations. We will use an example UAV scenario to evaluate the UAV’s sensor against an unknown interference source located within our area of interest.
