DHS/CISA/PIA-031 Small Unmanned Aircraft Systems (sUAS)


The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA) Infrastructure Security (IS) Division plans to incorporate the use of small unmanned aircraft systems (sUAS) into its program offering exercises to critical infrastructure protection stakeholders to train for, assess, practice, and improve performance in prevention, protection, mitigation, response, and recovery capabilities for natural or man-made attacks. Uses during exercises include capturing photographic and video images of the exercise activities and to use the sUAS as a simulated payload delivery mechanism for certain exercise scenarios. CISA is conducting this Privacy Impact Assessment to address the privacy impacts of the sUAS image-capturing capabilities. July 2019
