Includes Physical Objects:

Physical Object Class Description
Border Inspection Administration Center Center 'Border Inspection Administration Center' represents back-office systems and databases run by domestic and foreign governmental agencies responsible for the regulation of trade, and the enforcement of customs and immigration laws. These agencies include U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS) and its counterparts in Canada and Mexico. DHS includes components like Customs and Border Protection (CBP), Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE), and Transportation Security Administration (TSA). Other agencies include secondary trade agencies (e.g., U.S. Food and Drug Administration, U.S. Department of Agriculture, other USDOT departments, etc.), and agencies from other trading nations. The systems they manage coordinate activities related to the border crossings. These systems support import/export cargo processing and enforcement operations at the border, including programs such as FAST, Automated Commercial Environment (ACE), Nexus (Canada), SENTRI (Mexico), and US-VISIT.
Border Inspection System Field 'Border Inspection System' represents data systems used at the border for the inspection of people or goods. It supports immigration, customs (trade), agricultural, and FDA inspections as applicable. It includes sensors and surveillance systems to identify and classify drivers and their cargo as they approach a border crossing, the systems used to interface with the back-office administration systems and provide information on status of the crossing or events.
Other Border Inspection Administration Centers Center Representing another Border Inspection Administration Center, 'Other Border Inspection Administration Centers' is intended to provide a source and destination for information exchange between international border administration functions. It enables traffic management activities to be coordinated across international borders.

This contains the full manifest of the cargo container, as well as the results of the vehicle screening. This data can be highly sensitive. This flow contains information about a significant number of shipments, which increases the value of this data. This response directly determines whether or not the vehicle is cleared to cross the border. An incorrect message could lead to a vehicle which should not be allowed to cross the border ending up across the border. The system must have an acknowledgement of a missed message. If a message is not received, it may lead to extra searches, as vehicles could not be automatically cleared.
