SRC delivers first Agile Condor pod to US Air Force Research Lab
 
SRC, Inc. has delivered the first Agile Condor pod system to the Air Force Research Lab (AFRL) in Rome, NY. The Agile Condor pod system is a scalable, low cost, size, weight and power (low-CSWaP) hardware architecture that enables on-board processing of large quantities of sensor data through high-performance embedded computing (HPEC).

The Agile Condor flight-configured pod system consists of an external pod enclosure and an internal chassis with modular computing architecture that allows for expandable computational power – paving the way for advanced computing technology, such as bio-inspired neuromorphic computing. The Agile Condor HPEC system has been designed for installation in almost any configuration, such as airborne, ground-based and sea-based moving platforms, or fixed-site emplacement.

"We are proud to have been given the opportunity to engineer an innovative and sophisticated computing architecture like the Agile Condor system for AFRL's Information Directorate in Rome, NY. The delivery of this first system helps advance the intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance capabilities of our Air Force, providing our national leaders and warfighters with significant technical, tactical, and situational-awareness advantages far beyond the present capabilities," said Paul Tremont, SRC's president and CEO.

This delivery is part of an ongoing, three-year research and development contract SRC has with AFRL to deliver a second Agile Condor system with embedded computing at the end of 2017.
