DBIDS technology makes its way to Kadena Air Base

Date Posted: 2010-07-29

The Defense Biometric Identification System (DBIDS) is being introduced to Okinawa next week, bringing an increased security monitoring element into effect for bases.

All persons in possession of a DoD ID Card, to include military members, dependents, civilians, contractors, retirees and MLC’s will be required to register their identification cards beginning August 2nd. The process is simple, with DoD ID Card holders going to the Kadena Gate 1 Visitor Control Center between 7 a.m. and 10 p.m. Military members must bring their CAC card and restricted area badges, while dependents, including children 10 and older, must bring DoD issued ID cards. Civilian/contractors should take their DoD issued ID cards used for installation access and restricted area badges.

MLC’s and IHA employees must also go to the Gate 1 Visitor Control Center, bringing current USFJ Form 98EJ for reissue, and restricted area badges.

The registration locations in August also include Keystone Theater August 2nd – 13th 7 a.m. to 12:30 p.m., and the 26th, 27th, 30th and 31st from 8 a.m. – 4 p.m. Registration at Schilling Center is available August 11th 12:30 p.m. – 4 p.m., and the 16th, 18th, 20th, 23rd and 25th from 7 a.m. – 9 p.m. From September through next March, registration will take place Monday through Fridays, 8 a.m. – 4 p.m. at the Keystone Theater.

DBIDS is a Department of Defense (DoD) identity authentication and force protection tool that is fully operational in military locations around the world. It serves as a physical access control and critical property registration system, using bar codes and biometrics to identify cardholders. DBIDS is authorized to issue DoD identity credentials for those individuals needing physical access and not otherwise eligible for a CAC.

DBIDS easily identifies, controls, and accounts for personnel entering military installations, assists in decreasing manpower requirements and is used not only for U.S. personnel, but for all personnel requiring access to military installations. The DBIDS has been in effect for a number of years on all military installations in South Korea, and is currently being implemented at U.S. stateside bases.
