Panther Family: Upcoming changes for entrance to Fort Bragg:

As part of a Department of Defense Directive for all military installations to install Physical Access Control Systems, Fort Bragg will soon begin using the Automated Installation Entry System (AIE). The AIE system is designed to leverage technology and validate credentials against authoritative databases in near-real-time. One of the primary purposes of AIE system is to cut down on human errors at access points, such as expired identification or restricted access.

Card holders will be asked to drive up to an AIE pedestal scanner and swipe their DOD ID card. Once the card is read, the individual’s credentials will be instantaneously validated against federal and Fort Bragg records. Guards will still be present to monitor the information retrieved from the card swipe, and once access credentials are verified, entrance will be granted. (more…)
