3 FAA Facts/Figures Reducing historically low commercial accident rate As of 2005,19,854 Airports (Public & Private) in the US.245,639 Aircraft Registered in the US.609,737 pilots in the US.21st Century Aviation faces the prospects of terrorism, structural change, and a fluctuating global economy.In 2004, US civil aviation was collectively responsible for $1.37 trillion of national output, supporting 12.3 million employees and $418 billion in personal earnings.FAA is charged with:Reducing historically low commercial accident ratebuilding an air traffic control system capable of efficiently meeting future demandmodernizationworking more closely with our customers and partners in providing the most secure system without impeding safetyFAA

5 System Operations Security Who we are and what we do SOS was created to be the Nexus between operational intelligence and the NAS.Post 9/11, most of FAA’s security and intelligence staff was transferred to TSA.ATC remains the front line of the National Airspace System (NAS).The FAA continues to be the sole authority for airspace management, air traffic regulatory authority, and use of airspace.Balance the needs of National Security with the demands of the aviation industry…“It’s the economy…”Domestic Events Network (DEN)Temporary Flights Restrictions (TFRs)Presidential, NSSEs, Disasters, SecurityClassified Aviation ProgramsAir Defense Sector LiaisonsSpecial Use AirspaceDOT/FAA Crisis Response
6 System Operations Security Domestic Events Network (DEN) 24/7 unclassified interagency telephonic conference dedicated to real time coordination of air security issues.Established on the morning of 9/11.Over 80 participants:All major ATC facilities,All air defense sectors,Military, Federal and Local agencies,All concerned with air security matters.

8 System Operations Security National Capitol Region Coordination Center (NCRCC) 24/7 interagency facility monitoring and coordinating the air security of the National Capitol Region:FAADOD (NEADS, JADOC)DHS (TSA, USSS, CBP, USCG)FBIUS Capitol & DC Metro Police
10 Temporary Flight Restriction (TFR) A TFR is not a Force Field.A TFR keeps an informed, proficient and compliant pilot out of the airspace.A TFR is a good sorting tool.Managing a TFR from a security perspective is a Time/Distance equation.Speeds involved in aviation make large evacuations nearly impossible.
11 System Operations Security FAA TFR Considerations Nature of event (Security/Disaster)Existing airspace (Class B, Borders)Size of TFRAvailable assetsCredible threat intelligenceAviation commerceSafety of flight
12 TFR Complications Threat Risk Consequence Politics Common Sense Legal ParametersFree SocietyEconomic ImpactsSense or illusion of being safe and secure.
13 System Operations Security Temporary Flight Restrictions (TFR) Protect persons and property in the air or on the surface from an existing or imminent hazard associated with an incident on the surface when the presence of low flying aircraft would magnify, alter, spread, or compound that hazard (14 CFR Section (a)(1))
14 System Operations Security Temporary Flight Restrictions (TFR) Provide a safe environment for the operation of disaster relief aircraft (14 CFR Section (a)(2))
15 System Operations Security Temporary Flight Restrictions (TFR) Prevent an unsafe congestion of sightseeing aircraft above an incident or event which may generate a high degree of public interest (14 CFR Section (a)(3))
16 System Operations Security Temporary Flight Restrictions (TFR) Special Security Instructions Addressing Interest of National Security(14 CFR Section 99.7).
17 System Operations Security Temporary Flight Restrictions (TFR) Provide a safe environment for space agency operations (14 CFR Section ).

25 Good to Know The Pope is coming. Planned sites are DC and New York…..possibly one otherPresidential Campaign…nowhere to hide!After the November election, possibility of even more TFRs.In 2004, 45% of TFR violators were ID’d. In 2007, 95% had a knock on the door.
26 Good To KnowADS-B (C,X,X2, etc). Future of airborne security in the operational environment?Most interior radars will NEVER go away.Remember the term “ADAPT”..Automatic Display and Processing TerminalEssentially an air security package in a box (a laptop to be exact)Over 50 databases and countingExploring connectivity with non-terrorism related national criminal history databases
28 We can represent you within the FAA All things are possible YOU are our customersWe can represent you within the FAAThere is an “evil” FAA and a “good” FAAWe are the good FAA!We can apply a “law enforcement filter” to what is essentially a safety organizationOFFICER SAFETYAll things are possible
