It is a Deflector, Shield, and Engine set for RA level. It must be Crafted or purchased from the Exchange - from someone else who has Crafted it. You can read about it here: http://www.stowiki.org/Aegis_Technological_Research

The Aegis set is set of three ship items that can be crafted, you can look at it in your R&D overview even if you have never crafted before. You find the R&D overview in the dropdown menu on the lower right side of the mini-map.

Not the c-store, you mean the exchange.

Oops! Yes, the Exchange. It's been awhile since I typed Exchange for a purchase.

Just compare their tooltips and find out.

As the first reply said, Aegis is kind of a RA set. IMO, it is a good set, but it would not be as good as (for examples) a full MACO/Borg or Omega set, or an optimized mix of those.

I still use the Aegis engines, despite having the MACO mk XII shield and deflector, since the 5% defense is still better in an STF, compared to the proc set pieces for the Borg, and a still weak to me 3rd piece grav beam, compared to the cooldown. I'm not a full fan of procs that may or may not fire, when you need them the most.

I seem to do more Dps, when I keep alive for my teammates. =^^=

I'm not so sure about the Aegis being better than MACO. The difference in shield strength is minimal and you must not forget that MACO has a -10% damage to shields buff, which stacks with your actual shield resistance.
