A new electronic system could make the entry procedure for military and their families seamless on Fort Gordon.
The Automated Installation Entry system, or AIE, will be rolled out in mid-January. All active duty troops, their families, and retirees with a U.S. Department of Defense (DOD) card will have the system activated. From there, they will be able to get into the gate with just the swipe of a card. But how will it affect visitors?
"You will still have to go through the same process. You will go over to the Visitor Control Center, and you will receive a visitor's pass to come on the installation. It won't change your procedure. If anything, it should go quicker because there will be less folks coming into the Visitor Control Center," Lieutenant Colonel Hollis Bush.
Your DOD card doesn't automatically grant you access to the system, as you must register first.
Fort Gordon staff tells us they have 20,000 registered on the system already...and the goal is to have 56,000 registered by the system debut in January.
