  • The HAZMAT Truck Security Pilot was a congressionally mandated pilotproject to design and build a centralized truck tracking center capability.
  • TSA developed a set of protocols capable of interfacing with existing truck tracking systems.
  • The desired outcome was to test the feasibility of a centralized truck tracking center and capability that allowed TSA to continually track truck locations and HAZMAT load types in all 50 states and to receive exception based events.

The Way Forward

  • The 9/11 Act, Sec. 1554- Motor Carrier Security-Sensitive
  • Material Tracking:

…shall develop a program to facilitate the tracking of

motor carrier shipments of security-sensitive materials

and to equip vehicles used in such shipments with

technology that provides:

  • Frequent or continuous communications
  • Vehicle position location and tracking capabilities
  • A feature that allows a driver of such vehicles
  • to broadcast an emergency distress signal
