AEgis Missile Defense missions support AMRDEC and the Missile Defense Agency with ground testing of the Ballistic Missile Defense System, pre-mission prediction, validation of threat models, mission planning and data recording, Model based systems engineering, analysis, and development activities. We are the primary developer of real-time scene generation systems for the AMRDEC S3I Directorate, physics-based 2D / 3D modeling to create dynamic scenes for tactical ground and air engagements. AEgis Technologies develops Hardware-in-the-Loop (“HWIL”) simulations of tactical, air defense, and strategic weapon systems.

Ballistic Missile Defense Ground Test Integration

  • Test scenario development for HWIL testing in support of MDA Ground, Flight, and numerous Fast test events.
  • Scenario development for the C2BMC Distributed Training System (DTS/SS) and support the integration of digital models into the test framework. 
  • Development of test scenarios for IDDL a UEWR/CDU sensor focused test laboratory. 
  • Coordination and oversight for the developmental execution of Ground and Flight test events using the defined MDA Framework and tactical elements participation in accordance with the Ballistic Missile Defense System Ground Test Concept of Operations (MDA CONOPS). 
  • Generation of Framework procedures, operation of the Framework execution software, and generation of post-test reports to the GOV. 
  • Demonstration of event architecture interoperability by reducing or mitigating risks and identifying any anomalies prior to Operational Event Architecture Certification (EAC) test execution.

Hardware-In-THE-Loop (HWIL) Simulation Development

AEgis supports the development and operations of 6DOF HWIL Simulation at the Air Force KHILS facilities at Eglin AFB, FL.

  • Real-Time HWIL simulation of tactical, air defense, and strategic weapon systems in MMW, EO/IR/UV, SAL & LADAR bands
  • Development of scene generation systems, 6-DOF simulations, SW/HW sensor interfaces, and EO/IR Scene projectors R&D development of IR/LED Scene Projectors 
  • Simulation integration, Verification and Validation and operations support.

BMC2 and Planner Analysis

The BMC2 and Planner Analysis group supports AMRDEC, MDA, and the Air Force in future performance requirements development, integration and interoperability testing, and provides subject matter expertise in the area of Integrated Air & Missile Defense (IAMD) Planning.

  • The AMRDEC Integrated Defense Planner (IDP) Lab provides an operationally relevant analysis environment to facilitate validation of operational concepts, performance requirements, and information exchange requirements.
  • Supports the MDA Collaborative Test & Evaluation Center (CTEC) with threat analysis and performance requirements determination for future spirals of the BMDS C2BMC system software.
  • Scenario and test operations support for the Advanced Hypersonic Weapon (AHW) program.

Microelectronics and Avionics Development

AEgis designs and develops custom electronics, MicroElectroMechnical, and Micro-optical systems to support development of advanced sensor/seekers, guidance, and target discrimination and for HWIL test instrumentation.

  • Electronic integration capabilities for advanced technologies for proof-of-principal, prototyping, and technology maturation. Support Advanced Instrumentation development with high speed, high bandwidth solution for RF and Optical signal generation and injection 
  • FEA Multiphysics based modelling of MEMS/MOEMS structures 
  • Electromagnetic Modelling and Simulation for signal integrity, 
    electromagnetic interference, sensors, antenna, and RF systems. 
  • Fabrication process development of MEMs and microelectronics

Programmatic and Technical Missile System Support

AEgis provides programmatic and technical support to MDA BC and participates in the MDA C2BMC Communications Connectivity Task Force (CCTF). AEgis support MDA through such programs as:

  • U.S. Army THAAD and PATRIOT programs
  • U.S. Navy Aegis Ballistic Missile Defense (BMD) systems
  • MDA specific systems
