SPEAKER ANNOUNCEMENT: Digital Mission Engineering Forum

By: AGI Marketing

We are excited to announce some of the fantastic speakers at our upcoming Digital Mission Engineering (DME) Forum. These talented people will discuss the value of digital engineering in the aerospace industry.

AGI has developed the physics-based modeling environment, Systems Tool Kit, for over 30 years. We have extraordinary insight to offer. And the benefits are clear: digital mission engineering enables you to deliver more complex systems much faster.

When you attend the DME forum, you will explore the challenges and rewards of implementing DME practices. Your guides - the speakers and panelists listed below - are leaders in this new domain. They represent companies whose experience exemplifies the potential of digital transformation.

The DME Forum is an essential event for anyone who needs to connect mission objectives and requirements to a product or system life cycle. Speakers at each location include:
