    Good Morning! I would like to share an awareness message that came out from USNORTHCOM. This would be Force Protection FP ADVISORY 16-067.

    1.(U) This advisory is published to provide security awareness information regarding counter Non-Traditional Aviation Technology /Unmanned Aircraft Systems (C-NTAT/UAS) in the continental United States (CONUS) and Alaska. Widest dissemination to al bases, installations, and facilities are encouraged.

    2.(U/FOUO) BACKGROUND AND INTENT. Rapid Proliferation of NTAT/UAS, particularly small UAS, places new stresses on our ability to protect Department of Defense (DOD) property and people. Their abundance, size and speed, and dual use nature challenges our existing regulations and force protection (FP) response options. The overarching intent of this advisory is to inform and further prompt review of NTAT/UAS response options and procedures across the DOD community.

    3.(U) Education and Awareness Training.

    3.A.(U/FOUO) Ensure DOD responders and law Enforcement (LE) Personnel understand the standing rules for the use of force parameters .

    3.B.(U) Through all available methods, ensure DOD community members understand the importance of NTAT/UAS suspicious activity reporting.

    3.C.(U) Through all available methods, ensure DOD community members are made aware or regulations pertaining to NTAT/UAS operations on the installation. To the extent possible , utilize DOD Public affairs outreach to local civilian communities venues (E.G., NEWSPAPERS AND MEDIA OUTLETS) AS A SOURCE TO EDUCATE CITIZENS OF UNLAWFUL ACTS THEY MAY BE COMMITTING DURING NTAT/UAS operations in the proximity to DOD Property.

    3.C.1.(U) TITLE 18 UNITED STATES CODE, SECTION 795, Photographing and sketching defense installations: t is unlawful to make any photographs, sketch, picture, drawing, map, or graphical representation of vital military installations and whoever violates this section shall be fined or imprisoned not more than a year or both.

    3.C.2.(U) TITLE 18 UNITED STATES CODE, SECTION 796, USE OF AIRCRAFT FOR PHOTOGRAPHING DEFENSE INSTALLATIONS: Whoever uses or permits the use of an aircraft or any contrivance used, or designed for navigation or flight in the air, for the purpose of making a photograph, sketch, picture, drawing, map, or graphical representation of vital military or naval installations or equipment, in violation of section 795 of this title, shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than a year, or both.

    4.C.(U) Refer to the FAA website for additional information on UAS regulations and enforcement as the FAA recognizes that state and local LEA's are often in the best position to deter, detect, immediately investigate, as appropriate, pursue enforcement actions to stop unauthorized or unsafe NTAT/UAS operations. Reviewing the contents of this site will provide DOD personnel an understanding of the information requirements the FAA DESIRES OF LEA'S. FAA URL IS Unmanned Aircraft Systems.

    What does this mean to you?

    Please be aware that the government is concerned with counter Non-Traditional Aviation Technology /Unmanned Aircraft Systems (C-NTAT/UAS) in the continental United States (CONUS) and Alaska. Secondly let's do an education and awareness training for our employee and let them know how the government is viewing these devices. Since these items are very popular please make sure your employees and the workforce know that there are rules regulations and consequences for using this technology incorrectly. The third thing is to remember to report these types of devices should you see then flying inside your facilities or flying over the US Naval Vessels.

    I will be getting with our Law Enforcement partners and personnel working with them to get a better understanding of their responses, reporting, and immediate actions concerning these devices.

    I want to thank everyone for their support and attention to this security Education and Awareness Training on this subject.

    seems like common sense not to fly around a military base but there is always that one.

    According to the actual US Code section, the President has to designate an area as un-photographable before that takes effect, so chances are you're okay for taking a picture of your local American Legion post. Whoever's been flying around the Bangor WA sub base recently though, not so much. (*******.)
