RAPIDGate program to provide access control to high security NASA test facility

EID Passport : 08 October, 2008  (Application Story)
NASA's White Sands Test ground to gain flexible personnel access control using EID Passport's RAPIDGate access management system
Eid Passport has been selected by the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) to provide further security to its White Sands Test Facility in White Sands, New Mexico. The RAPIDGate Program improves security and streamlines facility access for the multitude of private vendors, suppliers and contractors who regularly provide services inside secure NASA facilities.

NASA's White Sands Test Facility was the first NASA facility to implement the RAPIDGate Program in August 2008. Vendors who visit the facility benefit through automated and efficient entrance to highly secure areas which alleviates waiting for manual ingress processes and procedures upon each visit.

White Sands maintains one external perimeter with separate facilities within, each requiring different access procedures and approval. The RAPIDGate Program allows vendors entrance to specific facilities within the perimeter based on individual authorisation, further enhancing the security and efficiency of the ingress process.

"NASA facilities house some of the nation's most precious resources and we're thrilled Eid Passport was chosen to add that extra layer of security necessary to protect them," said Steve Larson, CEO of Eid Passport. "In addition to the security benefits for the facility, the RAPIDGate Program will streamline access, saving vendors and NASA personnel time, resources and money."

The RAPIDGate Program is already in use on dozens of military and government installations across the United States, including the US Coast Guard, the US Marine Corps, the US Army, the US Navy, and the Department of Homeland Security.
