AIAA Aviation 2018

AGILE  is developing the next generation of aircraft Multidisciplinary Design and Optimization processes, which target significant reductions in aircraft development costs and time to market, leading to cheaper an greener aircraft solution. 

AGILE Objectives

AGILE is implementing novel design methodologies and platforms, accelerating the deployment of large scale, distributed, cross-organizational MDO processes.

AGILE ambition is to achieve the reduction of 20% in time to converge the design of an aircraft and a 40% in time needed to setup and solve the multidisciplinary problem in a team of heterogeneous specialists.

To meet the challenging objectives of the AGILE project a team of 19 industry, research and academia partners from Europe, Canada and Russia are collaborating together. The composition of the Consortium reflects the heterogeneous structure characteristic for today’s aircraft development teams.
