Fort Bragg Automated Installation Entry II+ (AIE II+)
AIE II+ Overview
Fort Bragg is upgrading to the Army’s Automated Installation Entry II+ (AIE II+) at preinstalled AIE capable installation Access Control Points (ACP) to enhance security and expedite access to base. AIE II+ leverages technology that will increase security for Soldiers, Family members, DoD civilians, retirees, contract employees, and guests by verifying identity of the individual(s) and ensuring they meet Army approved access standards against FBI criminal and terrorist authoritative databases.
AIE II+ Fielding
During the last several months Fort Bragg has retrofitted the existing AIE system with new software and scanner capabilities. During the month of March 2016, personnel can expect minor wait time delays entering the installation. The AIE II+ fielding upgrade will verify and display to the guard the driver’s access status. If all checks are successfully passed during the ID card scan the lane traffic light will turn “Green” and the gate arm will lift to allow access through the ACP. The AIE II+ system is designed to leverage technology to increase security for the Soldiers, Family members, DoD civilians, retirees, contract employees, and guests of Fort Bragg. Card holders will drive up to an AIE II+ pedestal and scan their ID card at a scanner. Once their 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.
AIE II+ Registration
If a DoD cardholder’s identification fails to work at an AIE II+ access lane they need to proceed to the All American Visitor Control Center (VCC) for registration troubleshooting. The AIE II+ system has in lane registration capability for all DoD ID cards. This means when a DoD ID cardholder drives up and scans their card for the first time at a lane pedestal the initial registration process will take 10-15 seconds to validate their credential. Subsequent scans following the initial registration process will only take 1-3 seconds thereafter.
Visitor Control Center (VCC)
The non-DoD visitors AIE II+ registration process takes 3-7 minutes to complete to receive an access pass/card. The Fort Bragg All American (VCC) located at the All American Hwy, Access Control Point (ACP), Building H-1575, outside ACP 5, or if you are a sponsored commercial vendor or contractor please use the Truck Plaza VCC located off Cook Street in Building K-1153 outside ACP 16. AIE II+ registration will be Sun-Sat, 0500-2100 at the All American VCC and 0500-2100 Monday –Friday at the Truck Plaza Truck Plaza. Truck Plaza weekend registration hours are 0500-1300 located off Cook Street.
AIE II+ Cards
Fort Bragg AIE II+ Access Cards may be issued for a maximum of three years for individual(s) who require recurring access to the installation for official business. The application request form (DES Form 118) for access cards will be located on the Fort Bragg Provost Marshal webpage http://www.bragg.army.mil/directorates/DES/pmo/Pages/AIE.aspx under the Installation Access Control tab. Sponsorship is required in order to obtain a card and all applications (DES Form 118) scanned and emailed to DES Visitor Sponsorship mailbox using the approving authority’s government email account. Once approved, the approving authority will be notified so they can contact the applicant(s) to go and process for their AIE II+ card.
Visitor Passes will be issued to all non-DoD persons with a valid reason for entering the installation. A visitor pass can be issued for one year for all non-DoD personnel. A security vetting process will be completed on each non-DoD individual prior to receiving a visitor pass. This includes all non-DoD passengers riding in a non-DoD person’s vehicle. Enrollment in the AIE II+ program will not exempt an individual from being selected for random inspection in accordance with the installation's Random Anti-terrorism Measures Program.
The AIE II+ system allows registered DoD ID personnel to act as “Trusted Travelers,” which means only the DoD ID cardholder driver has to scan their identification card, not one for each passenger. The term Trusted Traveler only applies to passengers with a valid reason for entering the installation, such as guests of the DOD sponsor under their immediate control. The Trusted Traveler program will be suspended at increased FPCON levels and may be suspended as local threat situations dictate. As part of the enrollment process, all customers will be required to read the Trusted Traveler program memorandum at the VCC during system enrollment.
