ANSYS has collaborated with Analytical Graphics Inc. (AGI) to incorporate 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.
High-fidelity, multiphysics engineering simulation is needed early in the design cycle to conduct critical architectural and mission analysis and to further 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.
Kevin Flood, vice president of engineering at AGI, commented, “AGI and ANSYS look forward to interconnecting these systems, incorporating a high level of engineering fidelity into their architecture analysis and mission analysis.”
Joseph Cole, Vice President, Federal, Aerospace and Defense at ANSYS. “With this partnership, the same high-fidelity physics models that our customers use to reduce design time, enhance reliability and streamline maintenance operations can now be leveraged to increase the accuracy of mission level modeling and simulations as well.”
AGI and ANSYS will discuss their ability to incorporate high-fidelity, multiphysics engineering simulation into mission-level modeling at the Space and Missile Defense Symposium in Huntsville.
