RAPIDGate access control program for US coast guard

EID Passport : 17 October, 2008  (Application Story)
Pre-screening program from Eid Passport to assist the US coastguard in Honolulu to manage access control and improve security
US Coast Guard Integrated Support Command (ISC) Honolulu has implemented a gate access program called the RAPIDGate Program (an acronym which stands for "Registered And Previously ID'd") for the thousands of vendors, suppliers, service providers and contractors who routinely access the US Coast Guard installation. The RAPIDGate Program, a product of Portland based Eid Passport is designed to improve base security by pre-screening companies and employees and to streamline gate access for vendors.

Persons participating in the RAPIDGate Program at US Coast Guard ISC Honolulu are issued an identity credential that allows most vehicles access through the Front Gate and oversized vehicles access through the Back Gate. Since all participants are previously screened, participants receive expedient access and will not require an escort. Those persons not taking part in the program will be required to have an escort while on the installation and are required to obtain a contractor pass every two weeks.

"Eid Passport is pleased to provide another US Coast Guard facility with this important added layer of security," said Steve Larson, CEO of Eid Passport. "In addition to the security benefits for the facility, the RAPIDGate Program will save both vendors and US Coast Guard force protection personnel time, resources and money through more streamlined access."

In addition to the US Coast Guard, the RAPIDGate Program is currently used at a multitude of locations across the continental US and Hawaii for the US Marine Corps, US Army, US Navy and the Department of Homeland Security.
