Southern Command (SOUTHCOM) operates one ARL–C and two ARL–M aircraft. United States Forces Korea (USFK) operates three ARL–M aircraft. Planned upgrades for ARL include baselining the fleet by providing a common architecture for sensor management and workstation man-machine interface. ARL–C systems will be converted from COMINT only to ARL–M multiINT configuration. Planned sensor improvements include upgrading the radar to provide change detection and super-resolution SAR, upgrading the MX-20 electro-optical/infrared (EO/IR) subsystem to reflect current standards, including the addition of a laser illuminator, and the addition of digital pan cameras across the fleet for high-resolution imaging and change detection.
