Richmond, Virginia, was chosen as a testbed due to its dense urban terrain and environment, which can present technological challenges to C-UAS systems. Additionally, existing state and city programs, such as Virginia’s Department of Aviation’s (DOAV’s) work in drone traffic management, make Richmond an ideal DHS Science and Technology Directorate (S&T) testbed location. 

  • DHS/ICE/PIA-055 Repository for Analytics in a Virtualized Environment (RAVEn)

    The United States Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) Homeland Security Investigations (HSI) Innovation Lab is developing an analytical platform called the Repository for Analytics in a Virtualized Environment (RAVEn).

RAVEn also enables users to develop new tools to analyze trends and isolate criminal patterns as HSI mission needs arise. ICE is publishing this Privacy Impact Assessment (PIA) and its associated appendices because the analytical tools that reside on RAVEn access and store personally identifiable information (PII) retrieved from data systems owned by DHS, other governmental agencies, and commercial databases. ICE will regularly update the appendices to this PIA to reflect any new system connection or tool developed on the RAVEn platform.
