From the Purpose and Summary: "S. 2502, the American Security Drone Act of 2020, prohibits the Federal Government from procuring unmanned aircraft systems (UAS) manufactured or assembled by covered foreign entities beginning two years from the enactment of this bill. The bill includes exemptions for the Departments of Homeland Secretary (DHS), Defense (DOD) and Justice (DOJ) for the purposes of research, evaluation, training, testing, and analysis of counterterrorism activities and counter-UAS technology, among other things. With some exceptions, all executive branch agencies are required to account for and inventory any existing UAS manufactured or assembled by covered foreign entities. In addition, the bill requires the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) to develop a government-wide procurement policy of UAS to address the risks associated with processing, transmitting, and storing sensitive information collected from a UAS."
