The ARL-E system will replace nine (9) ARL-Multifunction (ARL-M) systems with nine (9) ARL-E systems through upgrading the air platform from existing Dash 7 to Dash 8-315 Quick Reaction Capability (QRC) airframes, re-hosting/upgrading current ARL sensors, adding new QRC sensors [Wide Area Surveillance (WAAS), Light Detection and Ranging (LIDAR), Hyper Spectral Imaging (HSI)], and integrating with Distributed Common Ground System-Army (DCGS-A). ARL-E supports a rapid plug and play, quick connect/disconnect, mounting system to allow the installation of various combinations of sensor-types in support of a wide-range of theater operations. ARL-E will provide tactical commanders the ability to persistently monitor their operational environment, allowing them to rapidly identify, track and respond to potential threats.
