Leidos has completed testing of sensor systems on the US Air Force's (USAF) AgilePod, a multi-sensor platform designed for intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance, the company announced on 25 July.

The testing was conducted as part of Project Harvest Reaper and run by the Air Force Research Laboratory's Sensors Directorate Blue Guardian team.

AgilePod is designed to accommodate and integrate multiple sensors onto operational systems. Leidos modified and integrated the multi-sensor platform to prepare the capability for initial flight demonstrations.

This successful test highlighted how open architectures along with common mechanical and electrical solutions can reconfigure sensors to support operational requirements for multiple aircraft. During the test, the team demonstrated eight different sensors in five different configurations. Follow on flight tests are planned on the MQ-9 Reaper for later this year.
