DBIDS continues enhancing installation security and communications

Because of the Defense Biometric Identification System (DBIDS), there were 379 denials for access to NAS Patuxent River in the month of September alone.

The Defense Biometric Identification System, better known as DBIDS, has been in effect at NAS Patuxent River since 2017, and has proven itself to be effective at managing personnel and installation access.

DBIDS is a Department of Defense system developed by the Defense Manpower Data Center as a force protection program. The system is used to enter personnel data into a database, capture biometric information, and retrieve that data and information for verification and validation at a later time.
