This is the March 31, 2022 hearing on "Assessing the Department of Homeland Security's Efforts to Counter Unmanned Aircraft Systems," held before the U.S. House Subcommittee on Oversight, Management, and Accountability and the Subcommittee on Transportation and Maritime Security of the Committee on Homeland Security. From the opening statement of J. Luis Correa: "We are here today to discuss the Department of Homeland Security's use of its authority to mitigate threats posed by drones. This authority to counter unmanned aircraft systems, known as C-UAS authority, was granted by Congress to the Department of Homeland Security in 2018. Since then, drone use has only increased in popularity and skies above our country have never been more crowded. While many of these drones are operated by hobbyists, photographers, and journalists who pose no threat to the American people, the technology has also been used by malicious actors who seek to compromise homeland security in a number of ways." Statements, letters, and materials submitted for the record include those of the following: Samantha Vinograd, Scott W. Clendenin, Austin Gould, and Dennis J. Michelini.
