Air Domain Awareness and Protection of the National Airspace System Fact Sheet

U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) is responsible for protecting our nation’s borders to prevent terrorists and terrorist weapons from entering the United States, while also facilitating the flow of legitimate trade and travel. Because of increased surveillance capabilities and successful border security operations, smugglers and terrorist organizations are exploiting other means for clandestine access to the United States, such as small unmanned and manned aircraft. These aircraft represent a significant security challenge, so it’s important that DHS have appropriate aerial surveillance systems that can quickly and accurately detect, track, and identify them.
