Do Any Other Federal Agencies Have Airspace Authority?

Recommended Posts

With maybe the exception I would imagine of the military (bases), do any other Federal Agencies (DHS for example) have authority to regulate (impose rules/laws) on where UAVs can and cannot be flown?  Or do all Federal Agencies need to exert their "will" so to speak through the FAA?  Note I am talking FEDERAL only.  NOT state, county, or local cities.

In the US, the ONLY agency with airspace authorization is the FAA.  The military can request airspace restrictions from the FAA, once restricted they can manage its usage but they are not the governing agency.
