Automated Installation Entry (AIE)
AIE is a physical access control system designed to validate DoD ID cards through DEERS. The system also has the capability to identify personnel who are restricted from Fort Gordon. Future upgrades will provide additional capabilities that will further enhance Fort Gordon’s security posture. The system requires DoD ID cards to be registered to gain access.
One of the primary purposes of the AIE system is to cut down on potential human errors that can occur at access points, such as missing expired identification or knowing if a driver has restricted access. Card holders will drive up to an AIE pedestal and swipe the ID card at a scanner. Once the card is read, the individual’s credentials will be validated against federal and post records. Guards will be monitoring the information retrieved from the ID cards and once it is verified, entrance will be granted.
In accordance with Fort Gordon Access Control Policy, all DoD cardholders are required to register their ID cards. Non-registered DoD personnel will be required to register prior to gaining access to the installation. Personnel can register their ID card at the Darling Hall, Military Police Admin Office, room 151 or Gate #1, Visitor Control Center. Lending of your DoD ID card or AIE pass to other individuals is strictly prohibited and may result in loss of installation privileges or access.
