DHS/CBP/PIA-075 Intelligent Computer Assisted Detection (ICAD) System


The Department of Homeland Security (DHS), U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) operates the Intelligent Computer Assisted Detection (ICAD) system to provide situational awareness along the United States border. The ICAD system assists the United States Border Patrol (USBP) in detecting, identifying, and apprehending individuals who may have illegally entered the United States or otherwise violated applicable U.S. laws between ports of entry (POE). CBP provided notice to members of the public about ICAD in the Border Surveillance Systems (BSS) Privacy Impact Assessment (PIA), but is publishing this new PIA to provide transparency about the system’s application and functionality.
