DHS/CBP/PIA-018 Aircraft Systems

The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) employs several types of aircraft, including manned helicopters, fixed-wing aircraft, and Unmanned Aircraft Systems (UAS) for border surveillance and law enforcement purposes. These aircraft may be equipped with video, radar, and sensor technologies to assist CBP in patrolling the border, conducting surveillance for law enforcement investigations or tactical operations, or gathering data to assist in disaster relief and emergency response. In addition, the United States Border Patrol (USBP) operates Small Unmanned Aircraft Systems (sUAS) in support of its border security mission. CBP is publishing this updated Privacy Impact Assessment (PIA) to provide notice of CBP’s use of sUAS not addressed in the original PIA, and to assess the privacy impacts of its use of this technology.
