Screening and Securing Air Cargo: Background and Issues for Congress
Bart Elias (au)
The Oct. 2010 discovery of two explosive devices being prepared for loading on U.S.-bound all-cargo aircraft overseas heightened concerns over the potential use of air cargo shipments to bomb passenger and all-cargo aircraft. The incidents renewed policy debate over air cargo security measures and prompted some policymakers to call for comprehensive screening of all air cargo, including shipments that travel on all-cargo aircraft. U.S. policies and strategies for protecting air cargo have focused on two main perceived threats: the bombing of a passenger airliner carrying cargo and the hijacking of a large all-cargo aircraft for use as a weapon to attack a ground target such as a major population center, critical infrastructure, or a critical national security asset. Contents of this report: The Air Cargo Industry; Security Threats to Air Cargo; Current Legislative Issues; Potential Challenges for All-Cargo Screening; International Cooperation; Risk-Based Evaluations of Shipment; Cargo Screening Procedures and Technologies; Supply Chain Security Measures; Security of Air Cargo Facilities and Operations; In-Flight Security Measures; TSA Inspection and Oversight of Air Cargo Operations. This is a print on demand report.
