DHS/S&T/PIA-026 Robotic Aircraft for Public Safety (RAPS) Project

DHS’ S&T Directorate and the State of Oklahoma are partnering on the Robotic Aircraft for Public Safety (RAPS) project to test and evaluate Small Unmanned Aircraft Systems (SUAS) for potential use by the first responder community and DHS operational components. SUAS include small aircraft that are operated using a wireless ground control station (GCS). The aircraft are equipped with sensors and cameras that can capture images and transmit them to a ground control system to provide aerial views of emergency situations and situational awareness. DHS S&T is conducting a Privacy Impact Assessment (PIA) to address the privacy impacts of the system’s surveillance and image capturing capabilities.
