The Transportation Security Operations Center (TSOC) is where TSA connects with the Department of Homeland Security, Federal Aviation Administration, FBI and other law enforcement and security agencies to analyze and monitor the entire U.S. transportation network.

Established in 2003 in response to 9/11, TSOC acts as the primary coordination point for multiple agencies that oversee and respond to security-related operations, incidents and crises in aviation and transportation security.

he center’s watch floor is a hub for communication, coordination and collaboration with the Department of Homeland Security’s National Operations Center. When an incident occurs such as a plane being diverted, a bomb threat or airspace violation, TSOC plays a critical role in the response and management of these scenarios.
