"The immediate mission of the Department of Transportation's Federal Aviation Administration's (FAA) after the Sept. 11 attacks was to enhance security aboard airplanes and restore confidence in the safety of air travel. The FAA is leading bold government and industry efforts to enhance aircraft security, including the design and installation of cockpit doors, surveillance systems to alert crews of activity in the cabin, and upgrading of transponders to ensure continuous operation. Prior to Sept. 11, the FAA was working with the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) to strengthen international security standards for airplanes.The FAA's new flight deck door standards expedite the work of an Aviation Rulemaking Advisory Committee (ARAC) working group that was tasked in 1999 to develop harmonized security-related design."
