The ASARS-2 Improvement Program is a joint effort with the Air Force to keep steadily improving the capabilities of this reconnaissance workhorse so that it will continue to provide valuable data to the warfighter for many years to come," said Sue Baumgarten, vice president of Raytheon's Surveillance and Reconnaissance Systems Division.
