Global Countermeasures in Transportation Security

National Security Presidential Directive-47/Homeland Security Presidential Directive-16 (NSPD-47/HSPD-16) of June 20, 2006 (Aviation Security Policy) details a strategic vision for aviation security while recognizing ongoing efforts, and directs the production of a National Strategy for Aviation Security and supporting plans. President George W. Bush established US policy, guidelines, and implementation actions to continue to fortify US homeland security and national security by protecting the United States and US interests from threats in the Air Domain 1 (defined as the global airspace, including domestic, international, and foreign airspace as well as all manned and unmanned aircraft that are operating. It also includes people and cargo present in that airspace, in addition to all aviation-related infrastructures).


NSPD-47/HSPD-16 directed the development of the National Strategy for Aviation Security (National Strategy), which established the overarching framework for a comprehensive and integrated national approach to ensure the security of the Aviation Transportation System, building on current successful initiatives and directing additional security enhancements, where necessary.



Using the information from the National Security Presidential Directive-47/Homeland Security Presidential Directive-16 (NSPD-47/HSPD-16), prepare a 6- to 8-slide PowerPoint presentation addressing the following issues:


  • Working with various overseas airlines and shipping companies, should the U.S. be allowed to deny access to any vessel or aircraft coming into the U.S. if foreign companies or countries refuse to implement US-mandated security measures, including granting FBI jurisdictional authority?
  • Should the severing of diplomatic or economic relations with a country refusing to comply be considered?
