AGILE innovation project

Aircraft 3rd Generation MDO for Innovative Collaboration of Heterogeneous Teams of Experts

The AGILE innovation project is granted by the European Commission. AGILE targets multidisciplinary optimization using distributed analysis frameworks. The project is set up to proof a speed up of 40% for solving realistic MDO problems compared to today’s state-of-the-art. The use cases are realistic overall aircraft design tasks for conventional, strut-braced, box-wing and BWB configurations. The scope of development:

  • Advanced optimization techniques and strategies
  • Techniques for collaboration
  • Knowledge-enabled information technologies

The project ran from 2015 to 2018 and was part of the Horizon 2020 program.


AGILE has received the presigius ICAS Award for Innovation in Aeronautics!

The “ICAS Award for Innovation in Aeronautics” is handed out “for outstanding and innovative contributions to the development of advanced aeronautical systems”.
