AGILE is an innovative, cost-effective gamma-ray mission proposed to the Italian Space Agengy (ASI) Program for Small Scientific Missions. It is designed to detect and image gamma-rays in the 30~MeV--50~GeV energy band and operate as an Observatory open to the international community. Primary scientific goals include the study of AGNs, gamma-ray bursts, Galactic sources, unidentified gamma-ray sources, solar flares, and diffuse gamma-ray emission. AGILE is planned to be operational during the year 2002 for a 3-year mission. It will an ideal `bridge' between EGRET and GLAST, and support space observations and ground-based multiwavelength studies of high-energy sources.
