The US Naval Air Station at Pensacola has chosen the RAPIDGate program from Eid Passport

EID Passport : 06 August, 2010  (Application Story)
Secure access control system with pre-enrolment and biometric verification to speed access to the Naval Air Station at Pensacola for speeding access control for regular contractors without compromising on security
Naval Air Station Pensacola (NAS Pensacola) is participating in the Navy initiative to increase security and streamline installation access by implementing the RAPIDGate Program. The patented program, offered by Eid Passport will manage installation access for vendors, suppliers, service providers and contractors. The program is offered as a solution to mitigate the delays expected as a result of recent changes in Department of Defense (DoD) and Commander, Navy Installations Command (CNIC) security directives requiring tighter security requirements to access Navy installations.

RAPIDGate Program participants receive a year-long access credential after they pass a background screening process and are approved by the installation. Credentials are electronically scanned and verified by security personnel in a matter of a few seconds. The program includes company enrolment, employee registration, employment status validation, identity authentication, background screening, biometric verification and entry authorization.

"We are proud to be a part of further securing NAS Pensacola, the launching point for the flight training of every Naval Aviator, Naval Flight Officer and Enlisted Aircrewman," said Eid Passport CEO Steve Larson. 'In addition to increasing security, the RAPIDGate Program will increase the efficiency of security measures resulting in time and money savings for companies that access the air station."

Company enrolment for the RAPIDGate Program began July 21, 2010 and employee registration began July 22, 2010. Companies are being encouraged to enrol their company and register their employees as soon as possible. Long-term contractor badges will no longer be issued as of September 13, 2010. Companies who do not enrol in the RAPIDGate Program will be required to obtain a day pass and will be subject to mandatory vehicle inspections.

The Naval Air Station Joint Reserve Base New Orleans (NAS JRB New Orleans) is also now offering company enrolment in the RAPIDGate Program.

"Today marks the first day NAS JRB New Orleans companies can enrol in the RAPIDGate Program and we are excited to offer them this streamlined access solution," said Eid Passport CEO Steve Larson. "By making a small investment in this program, companies who regularly access the air station will receive a substantial return on investment through streamlined access resulting in time saving and increased productivity."
