Air Cargo Security

S&T Air Cargo Program Fact Sheet

Since the 9/11 Commission Act of 2007, the TSA must ensure that 100 percent of cargo on all passenger flights in the United States is screened. To assist, the Department of Homeland Security, Science and Technology Directorate (S&T) is characterizing the air cargo environment (cargo, contamination and facilities), assessing new and modified screening systems, and developing new and advanced screening and detection tools and technologies. New technologies must screen more effectively without impacting the efficient flow of air cargo.

Air Cargo

The Air Cargo Screening Program is structured around developing new air cargo security technologies and enhancing existing air cargo security systems. The program objective is to counter current and future air cargo threats.
