PERFORMANCE SPECIFICATION FOR THE
CUSTOMS AND BORDER PROTECTION UNMANNED AERIAL VEHICLE
(CBP UAV) SYSTEM
1.0 SCOPE
1.1 IDENTIFICATION
This Performance Specification supports the acquisition of an unmanned
aircraft system
by the Department of Homeland Security/Customs and Border Protection
(DHS/CBP).
Its purpose is to specify performance, test, and verification
requirements for the
Customs and Border Protection Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (CBP UAV)
system.
1.2 ENTITY DESCRIPTION
The CBP UAV is an aircraft system with multiple payloads, which may be
employed by
various DHS agencies in a variety of environments. Components of the
CBP UAV
system can be deployed to multiple locations and operated
simultaneously. Control of
the CBP UAV will be from the Ground Control Station (GCS) at the
airfield for
operations in Line-Of-Sight (LOS). For operations Beyond-Line-Of-Sight
(BLOS), air
vehicle control will be transferred to a GCS located at the Border
Patrol Sector
Headquarters (HQ) or other designated location. Control of the CBP UAV
sensors will
be decentralized to the lowest tactical level necessary in the field.
CBP UAV support
will extend beyond the tactical units operating the system’s sensors.
Imagery receipt
and retransmission will be conducted from the airfield GCS in LOS and
from the HQ
GCS via the network in BLOS situations. Through its Link Segment and
control
consoles, the CBP UAV sensor data will be linked through the existing
network to an
extended group of users designated by CBP.
The CBP UAV System is intended to provide persistent, airborne
surveillance in support
of border operations. A system consists of these basic elements:
Aircraft, Payloads
(Sensors), Ground Control Station (GCS), takeoff and landing system,
Link Segment,
Sensor Control Terminals (SCT), and Remote Video Terminals (RVT).
1.3 DOCUMENT OVERVIEW
The word “equipment”, as used in this document, includes all

3.0 REQUIREMENTS
3.1 SYSTEM DEFINITION
The CBP UAV System is defined as all hardware, software, training, and
procedures
necessary to meet the requirements of the CBP UAV System Performance
Specification. A system consists of these basic elements: Aircraft,
Payloads (Sensors),
Ground Control Station (GCS), takeoff and landing subsystem, Data Link
Subsystems
(Link Segment), Sensor Control Terminals (SCT), and Remote Video
Terminals (RVT).
The exact configuration, quantity, and functional capability of these
basic elements will
depend on deployment scenario and on contractor design concepts used
to meet the
mission objectives.
3.1.1 CBP UAV System Overview
DHS/Customs and Border Protection (CBP) has determined by analysis of
alternatives
and multiple field demonstrations that a medium altitude, long
endurance, unmanned
aircraft provides significant and unique force enhancements to the
intelligence
gathering, situational awareness, and law enforcement tasks performed
by CBP.
Further tasks, such as communication relay and interception, although
not yet evaluated
in the field, are assessed to also be best performed by such a
platform. Alternatives
considered were sensors mounted in airships, aerostats, towers, and
manned aircraft.
The purpose of the CBP UAV System is to collect and pass information
using an
airborne sensor platform that will provide CBP and other DHS agents in
the field an
extended and enhanced situational awareness. The payloads that support
these
missions will evolve and mature over time. The CBP UAV System shall be
interoperable with a wide variety of mission payloads. It is
anticipated that this
requirement will be met through a versatile set of physical,
electrical, and data
interfaces. The data interfaces shall include internal interfaces
within the CBP UAV
System and external interfaces into the networks that provide
secondary distribution of
the data to end users.
The CBP UAV system’s main ground control station (GCS) and the rest of
the CBP
UAV system will initially be based at an airfield (Main Operating
Base, MOB) within the
Border Patrol Sector. Priorities for its use will be established and
managed by the
Border Patrol Sector Chief or his designated representative. The GCS
or takeoff and
landing system at the airfield will control the UAV while in
Line-Of-Sight (LOS). When
going Beyond-Line-Of-Sight (BLOS), control of the aircraft will be
passed from the
launch and recovery team at the airfield to another GCS located at a
designated Border
Patrol location (Sector Headquarters or other designated location)
once the aircraft is
established in level flight and reliable narrowband SATCOM up and down
links have

been established between the aircraft and the GCS (Figure 1). Once on
station, CBP
agents will control the aircraft's imaging sensor(s) via a Sensor
Control Terminal (SCT).
The sensor(s) will broadcast its images/video to those CBP agents in
its line of sight
who are equipped with a Remote Video Terminal (RVT). Imagery will also
be received
by towers located in various parts of the sector and transmitted to
the controlling GCS
for recording and further dissemination. Control of the sensor will
transfer between
adjacent agents, as the aircraft approaches subsequent areas. Requests
to change the
aircraft's mission shall be made to the controlling GCS, who will be
responsible for flight
safety. Initially, airspace separation and altitude deconfliction will
be employed to
ensure safe separation among manned helicopters, the CBP UAV, and
manned aircraft
operating near each other (see Figure 2).

Figure 2: Restricted Operating Zones (Notional)
The CBP UAV System design should (O) be of a modular nature that will
facilitate
reconfigurations to include or remove subsystem components, depending
on the
resources available to the parent unit and the operating environment.
For example, CBP
UAV ground components will require all the CBP UAV System resources
necessary to
perform the mission and shall be transportable by DHS organizational
transportation
assets.
