"This trade agreement will spotlight U.S. products and encourage the acceptance of American technology, which is good for our country, our company and our Korean allies," says AGI CEO Paul Graziani. "Our hope is that our commercial software products will help Korea ramp up quickly in the global space race and allow them to interoperate with the broader international space community."

Founded in 1989, AGI has been exporting since the mid- to late-1990s, but only recently began emphasizing exports as a part of its strategic plan.  Today, AGI has grown to 12 foreign markets. A small-to-mid-size business, AGI works closely with the U.S. Department of Commerce's Export Assistance Center, building an expanding network of software reseller partners, including KCEI Co., Ltd. based in Seoul, Korea.
