Air Force Research Laboratory’s AgilePod is a multi-intelligence, open architecture, reconfigurable prototype designed for the intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance (ISR) and Air Force Special Operations communities. The reconfigurable pod enables operators to customize sensor packages based on specific mission needs, enhancing the intelligence process. The pod capability will be tested on a medium altitude MQ-9 surrogate aircraft in May 2017. (Courtesy photo/released)
AgilePod ‘reconfiguring’ ISR mission
WRIGHT-PATTERSON AIR FORCE BASE, Ohio -- The ability to adapt a mission at a moment’s notice is a key tenet of the Air Force drive for flexibility in air power. For warfighters in the intelligence community, a new, Lego-like pod prototype expects to make that flexibility even easier on the field. Air Force Research Laboratory’s AgilePod is a
