Interesting. I have never used that format but I can give some hints.
First, you should execute 'gdalinfo --formats' on your server to check
if you has SRP support. Look for something like "SRP (ro) : Standard

verify that your local MapServer/GDAL build can read the ASRP format.
Next, you can point to the image in your mapfile layer, such as (and I'm

(a good document for you to read about raster support in MapServer is
Finally, you could test your mapfile with the shp2img commandline
utility, to see any error reports
