Tunnel Detection and Surveillance Fact Sheet


The Tunnel Detection and Surveillance program is a multi-year effort within the Department of Homeland Security Science and Technology Directorate that will improve the department’s capability to detect and locate clandestine tunnels and the ability to perform forensic analysis of a detected tunnel to support investigations and prosecution. This enhanced capability will keep hundreds of tons of drugs off U.S. streets while saving thousands of CBP labor hours.
