DHS/CBP/PIA-019 Air and Marine Operations Surveillance System

Air and Marine Operations Surveillance System (AMOSS) is a sophisticated radar processing system that supports the Custom and Border Protection (CMB) mission to protect the American people and critical infrastructure. AMOSS integrates use of air, land, and sea resources in order to detect, interdict, and prevent acts of terrorism and the unlawful movement of people, illegal drugs, and other contraband toward or across the borders of the United States.  The system may collect and use personally identifiable information from publicly available aircraft and airport data provided by the Federal Aviation Administration, requests from law enforcement about suspects, tips from the public, and recordings of event and operations data. This Privacy Impact Assessment (PIA) was conducted to provide notice and transparency to the public that AMOSS collects, uses, and shares personally identifiable information.
