AFRL carried out fit check of AgilePod on Scorpion

The U.S. Air Force Research Laboratory’s (AFRL) AgilePod multi-sensor reconfigurable pod was recently integrated on Textron Aviation Defense’s Scorpion light attack ISR aircraft.

WRIGHT-PATTERSON AIR FORCE BASE, Ohio – The Air Force Research Laboratory’s AgilePod is shown mounted on the wing of the Textron Aviation Defense’s Scorpion Light Attack/ISR jet. The AgilePod is an Air Force-trademarked, multi-intelligence reconfigurable pod that enables flight-line operators to customize sensor packages based on specific mission needs. A fit check held late December, 2017, provided an opportunity to demonstrate the ability of the pod to rapidly integrate onto a new platform with short notice, highlighting the benefits of Sensor Open Systems Architecture.
