Visit us at National Space Symposium next week

By: Brendan Houlton
As spring approaches (slow as it may be), we are getting ready for another exciting year at the 29th annual National Space Symposium (NSS). Held at the renowned Broadmoor Hotel in Colorado Springs, the NSS has come to be known as one of the premier events for space professionals and this year’s show appears to be no exception. AGI will be present in full force, ready to provide in-depth technical demonstrations showcasing how our commercial software products address a majority of the real-world challenges facing the industry. AGI's team of subject matter experts and respected leaders will engage senior staff within the commercial, civil and DoD space communities on the key issues influencing our current policy and posture. We know travel budgets are tight, but here are a few reasons not to miss this year's show. Headlining our technology demonstrations will be AGI’s “Modeling, Simulation and Analysis Framework (MSAF).” The MSAF provides a common framework for multi-level modeling, simulation and analysis (MS&A). Key features of the MSAF include a scalable commercial platform which supports rapid integration of COTS, GOTS and commercial simulation models into a single environment for analysis of existing and future architectures, capabilities and requirements. Beyond that, AGI engineers will demonstrate key new features from our latest STK 10 release; highlighting how we help address analytical and visualization requirements for missile defense, space situational awareness (SSA), electromagnetic interference (EMI) resolution, constellation management and much more. Furthermore, we will be emphasizing the value of free STK across the enterprise including free 3D. As if that weren’t enough, our business partners Riverside Research and Advanced Solutions, Inc. (ASI) will be on hand to demonstrate how they have leveraged and extended AGI’s open architecture commercial software to provide direct, specialized support to customers across the industry (Riverside's Automated Collection Planning Toolkit (ACPT) and ASI’s STK SOLIS). Don’t have tickets to access the exhibit hall? Feel free to leverage AGI’s free guest passes by going to and using the code “agi402.” While you’re in our booth (#402), don’t forget to pick up an invitation to join us at Monte Carlo Night for food, fun and "games" ... you can RSVP in advance at Finally, another favorite AGI offering is our delicious ice cream, available for all to partake in. I’ll leave you with a quick bit of engineering humor. What do you get when you divide the circumference of your ice cream bowl by its diameter? Pi a la mode. Hope to see you all at this year’s show!
