The U.S. Coast Guard (USCG) is conducting an operational pilot to test and evaluate Counter- Unmanned Aircraft Systems (C-UAS) capabilities used to detect, identify, and mitigate UAS that pose a credible threat to “covered facilities or assets.” USCG will conduct the pilot testing through 2020, after which the USCG C-UAS program may become fully operational. This Privacy Impact Assessment (PIA) discusses measures taken to mitigate privacy risks and protect against any impact to personally identifiable information (PII) during the deployment of C-UAS technologies under operational circumstances. If the USCG C-UAS program becomes fully operational, this PIA will be updated.

The United States Coast Guard Investigative Service (CGIS) uses a web-based electronic case records management system (RMS) known as the Field Activity Case Tracking System (FACTS) to capture, relate, and analyze information about the professional investigative activities of CGIS special agents.

CGIS is publishing this Privacy Impact Assessment (PIA) because FACTS collects personally identifiable information (PII) from DHS personnel, employees of other federal agencies, and members of the public.
