Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano said DHS will take additional steps to improve the security of the global aviation system by the end of the year. She noted that DHS has made significant improvements since the bombing attempt on Christmas Day. Speaking to a pilots' union, she also noted that DHS will use funding from the Recovery Act to pay for 1,500 advanced explosive detection machines, which will be used at airport passenger checkpoints. Napolitano also said she will request that the general assembly of the International Civil Aviation Organization formally approve a plan to build on five regional security declarations obtained by the U.S since the Christmas bombing attempt.
