Excerpt
Excerpt: In late 2002, terrorists fired surface-to-air missiles at an Israeli airliner departing from Mombasa, Kenya-the first time man-portable air defense systems (MANPADS) had been used to attack commercial aircraft in a non-combat zone. Given concerns about the vulnerability of the commercial airline industry and the potential impact of an attack in the United States, you requested that we conduct an assessment of the federal government?s efforts to address the MANPADS threat against commercial aircraft, including its nature and extent; the Department of Defense?s monitoring of Stinger missiles exported to other countries; and U.S. bilateral and multilateral efforts to address international MANPADS proliferation. After we began work on this assessment, the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) took steps to initiate a 2-year system development and demonstration program for a counter-MANPADS system and awarded the initial contracts in January 2004. On December 4, 2003, we briefed your staff on our views about DHS?s approach to developing the system. This report summarizes that information and transmits the portion of the briefing related to DHS?s counter-MANPADS development effort (see encl. I). Our assessment of the other federal efforts to address the threat is ongoing, and we expect to complete our report in the spring of 2004.
