Army to replace reconnaissance equipment aboard Dash 7/8 aircraft

The U.S. Army Contracting Command, Aberdeen Proving Ground, Md., intends to solicit and award a contract for a period of five years for the Airborne Reconnaissance Low - Enhanced (ARL-E) system.

The ARL-E system will replace nine ARL-Multifunction (ARL-M) systems with nine ARL-E systems by upgrading the air platform from existing Dash 7 to Dash 8-315 Quick Reaction Capability aircraft.

The 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.

It is anticipated that the Request for Proposal will be released in February.
