Abstract: AGILE is planned to be operational during the years 2005-2007. No other missions dedicated to gamma-ray astrophysics in the energy band 30 MeV - 50 GeV will be operational in that period. Most useful to GRB science will be the excellent positioning and sensitivity at off-axis angles, the very small instrumental daytimes and the onboard capability to trigger GRB in the hard-X ray range. AGILE will be able to detect 5-10 events/year above 50 MeV and 1-2/month in the 10-40 keV energy range. AGILE will have the unique capability to study simultaneously the gamma-ray and the hard-X ray emission. Simulation results of the AGILE GRB imaging capability are presented.
