USAF Kessel Run Labs Adopts New Office to Augment Personnel Experience

The U.S. Air Force has moved its Kessel Run Experimentation Laboratory to a new, bigger facility in Boston, C4ISRNet reported Monday. The software laboratory's new facility features a 30K-square-foot workspace with big screen computers, small conference rooms and long tables.

Adam Furtado, who directs Kessel Run, told C4ISRNet that the open facility would bring workers from the same area to collaborate, and reduce the need for emails and phone calls. Furtado intends to boost the personnel count by leveraging the Air Force's approval to add 50 more workers.

“We want to get to a point where we’re at a capacity based model where you give me x dollars, that’s x number of product teams where I can deliver this much value and move the needle in this many spaces incrementally forever,” he noted.

Kessel Run plans to hire new employees during a two-day recruitment event to take place on Jan. 23 to 24.
