U.S. Customs and Border Protectionäó»s Unmanned Aircraft System Program Does Not Achieve Intended Results or Recognize All Costs of Operations
Donald Bumgardner (ed)
U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP), in the Department of Homeland Security (DHS), guards nearly 7,000 miles of U.S. land border and 2,000 miles of coastal waters surrounding Florida, Texas, and southern California. CBPäó»s Office of Air and Marine uses air assets, including unmanned aircraft (drones) to patrol the borders, conduct surveillance, and assess disaster damage. This objective of this report was to determine the effectiveness and cost of CBPäó»s Unmanned Aircraft System program. It found that although the program contributes to border security, after 8 years, CBP cannot prove that the program is effective because it has not developed performance measures. The program has also not achieved the expected results. Specifically, the unmanned aircraft are not meeting flight hour goals. Figures and tables. This is a print on demand report.
