        assistance to air carriers to test the use of hardened 
        containers for cargo and luggage on passenger aircraft.
            (2) Purposes.--The purposes of the incentive program, at a 
        minimum, shall be--

                containers required in air carrier operations;
                    (C) to identify issues in logistics and control

                their possible solutions; and
                    (D) to identify training and maintenance 
                requirements associated with use of the hardened

        Secretary to air carriers under the incentive program may 
        include the use of hardened containers and financial assistance 
        to cover increased costs to the carriers associated with use 
        and maintenance of the containers, including increased fuel 
        costs.
    (d) Administration by TSA.--The Secretary shall carry out the pilot 
program acting through the Administrator of the Transportation Security
