does not look like it on this box:

Router#show version | i mem
cisco ASR1001 (1RU) processor with 6848986K/6147K bytes of memory.
32768K bytes of non-volatile configuration memory.
16777216K bytes of physical memory.

Try looking at the output of "show redundancy".  The ASR1000 had some kind of IOS redundancy feature to run two IOS processes on a box splitting up memory between them.
