WRIGHT-PATTERSON AIR FORCE BASE, OHIO – The Air Force Research Laboratory Aerospace Systems Directorate used Information Transfer Agreements to transfer its Advanced Framework for Simulation, Integration and Modeling software, a robust simulation and modeling tool, to 80 industry partners for development and evaluation.
An ITA is a relatively new type of technology transfer agreement used by the Air Force to share government developed software, such as executable files or source codes that are related to design or manufacturing activities with external, non-DoD partners. These partners can include state and local governments, academia and industry, depending on the distribution statement applied to the technology being transferred. For AFSIM, the software can only be shared with industry partners due to its distribution limitations.
AFSIM was created to rapidly represent advanced technologies and technology concepts for both government and industry developments that were often difficult or impossible to accurately represent with existing legacy tools. It is a powerful, flexible software simulation tool for use in research and development (R&D), operations analysis, and experimentation communities.
