Abstract : The Defense Airborne Reconnaissance Office (DARO) was established in 1994 by Congressional direction to unify the development and procurement activities of airborne reconnaissance assets of the services under the Office of the Secretary of Defense. The Army leadership fought the inclusion of Army programs in the Defense Airborne Reconnaissance Program (DARP) The Army fought and successfully kept its manned reconnaissance programs out of DARP. In light of declining budgets and the increased emphasis on joint warfighting, this research paper examines the rationale and ramifications of this decision. The paper specifically looks at the issues of personnel, programs and architectures and makes recommendations for future Army involvement in the DARO.
