Assured Mission Readiness. Improved ISR Agility.



AgilePod® is an open architecture, reconfigurable multi-mission pod for command and control, ISR and global strike operations.

Multi-Mission Capabilities

The ability for today’s military to adapt to multiple missions at a moment’s notice is not only critical but often the difference between success and failure. AgilePod® is a multi-mission, open architecture, reconfigurable carbon fiber pod, providing U.S. warfighters with global strike and affordable/operationally flexible airborne Intelligence, Surveillance and Reconnaissance (ISR) capabilities—while offering real solutions to close warfighting gaps.

Excellence At Work

AgilePod® enables U.S. Special Forces, Air Force, Navy and other users to change sensor configurations in less than two hours—compared to years—for currently fielded airborne ISR systems. Among its many benefits, AgilePod® provides operational flexibility and rapid fielding of new capabilities for manned and unmanned platforms. AgilePod® demonstrates the benefits of agile manufacturing and a modular open systems approach that makes command and control, ISR and global strike missions more affordable.

Prototype Success

In 2016, KeyW delivered its first AgilePod® prototype to the Air Force Research Laboratory (AFRL). AgilePod® is scheduled for integration/flight testing on the MQ-9 aircraft in early 2018. The response to AgilePod® has been overwhelmingly positive, and it’s been touted as a “game changer” for ISR.
