You can launch things like the Enterprise as a rocket in the US without having to worry about DHS, as long as you have FAA clearance. Rockets that fly over a certain height have to have FAA clearance (a lot of them you can buy as kits come with a letter from the FAA clearing them for flight). If you're launching in a high traffic area you have to get the FAA involved to ensure that the launch is safe (which would probably be a good idea anyway with those altitudes).
