AEgis provides systems engineering and support services to major defense programs. Our focus areas include strategic planning analysis, resource management, schedule development and assessment, program integration and management, international program support, systems analysis, integration, and system design.

Process Control Automation

Providing customers state of the art hardware and software systems used for automatic control of sophisticated test systems and processes. Automating Control Systems, Providing Advanced Solutions using Programming Tools for all Types of Control Systems

Our engineers are certified experts in providing advanced solutions utilizing National Instruments LabVIEW and TestStand programming tools. The Data Acquisition and Process Control team also programs with C, C++, Python, and is especially experienced providing secure web‐based, user‐friendly graphical interfaces.

SolidWorks mechanical design / 3‐D modeling CAD software and Altium Designer are engineering tools used to deliver fully customized, self‐contained systems. Mechanical interfaces are custom machined or fabricated using a 3‐D printer. Electronic hardware is laid out on custom designed and fabricated multi‐layer circuit boards. High density electronics and logic are integrated into systems by software programming of Field Programmable Gate Arrays (FPGA). 

Machine vision and image analysis is applied where the detection of process flaws and missing or misaligned components is required. Data Acquisition and Process Control Automation supports the US Government Departments of Energy (DoE) and Defense (DoD) through Sandia Labs, several government contractors, and industrial customers including GE Oil & Gas, Siemens Energy, and others.

Hermes III

Process Control Automation

AEgis is automating the operator control systems for the Hermes III vacuum, charging and fluid transfer systems at Sandia National Laboratories and implementing a web-based user interface.  Hermes III is the world’s most powerful gamma ray simulator producing a 20 million volt, 750 thousand amp electron beam.  Hermes III is used to test the effects of prompt radiation from a nuclear burst on electronics and complete military systems.


AEgis updated the operator control systems for the Saturn oil and water systems at Sandia National Laboratories. Saturn is a variable spectrum x-ray simulation source capable of producing 75 trillion watts in x-rays, and is used to expose electronics and materials to x-rays to determine their ability to withstand this hostile environment.


Process Control Automation

GE uses an AEgis developed tester with a custom designed mechanical interface to assure compliance of gas meters.

UAS Installed Data Acquisition System for Laser Weapon Programs

AEgis Process Control Automation custom designed mechanical packaging for small payload areas and minimal weight. The electronic hardware was designed to minimize power consumption and maximize flight time. RF telemetry downloaded data in real‐time. The rugged high shock packaging was able to withstand control crash landings (optional landing gear).

Machine Vision Cameras

The machine vision cameras integrated into this assembly line test station detects missing LED’s on a school bus stop‐arm.

Siemens Energy

Siemens Energy uses AEgis data acquisition systems to measure runout on 50 to 150 ton power generator and gas turbine rotors.

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

Simulation Based Analysis

AEgis provides contractor leadership to to AFRL Directed Energy Directorate Modeling, Simulation, Analysis, and Wargaming (MSAW) Team. AEgis also provides direct support in the areas of:

  • Modeling and simulation (M&S) development
  • Directed energy (DE) mission analysis and assessment
  • DE concept development
  • Wargaming

Technology Protection

AEgis Technologies provides Information, Program and Technology Protection solutions for major defense programs.

  • Supporting responsibilities under DODD 5200.39, AR 70-1, and DA PAM 70-3
  • Utilizing a layered approach to Program Protection
Information, Program, and Technology Protection Solution
Information, Program, and Technology Protection Solution

AEgis provides Information, Program and Technology Protection solutions for major defense programs supporting responsibilities under DODD 5200.39, AR 70-1, and DA PAM 70-3, utilizing a layered approach to Program Protection.  Our focus areas include Critical Technologies and Critical Program Information (CT/CPI) identification, with emphasis on critical program information assessment and determination, threat integration, vulnerability analysis and risk assessment, technology assessment/control plans, system security engineering, and the development of comprehensive countermeasures plans.

AEgis supports the identification of critical technologies in DoD Systems Acquisition environments using proven CT/CPI identification, CT/CPI threat vulnerability analysis methodologies and processes.  Aegis staff members have extensive experience with DoD guidance documents governing critical technology protection.  This experience includes development of processes, algorithms, and techniques to identify and quantify critical technologies using applicable guidance documents and databases.

DoD Acquisition Support

AEgis provides support to the Airborne Laser (ABL) program for the Missile Defense Agency (MDA).

  • Provide digital federation models and simulations to support critical decisions concerning the ABL
  • Establish the credibility of ABL M&S and identify to decision makers the risks inherent in their use
