DBIDS upgrade starts Tuesday Published Aug. 16, 2012 By Robins Public Affairs ROBINS AIR FORCE BASE, Ga. -- The Defense Biometric Identification System is scheduled to receive a system upgrade Tuesday through Aug. 28. On Tuesday, the DBIDS systems located at the Visitor Control Center will be the first to receive the upgrade. During this time, the VCC will be unable to process DBIDS ID cards for contractors, students and civilian family members, or to process DBIDS-generated visitor and vehicle passes. Due to the DBIDS upgrade, personnel requesting a DBIDS ID card will be issued a temporary visitor pass until the system is fully upgraded and operational. Those issued a temporary DBIDS pass will have to return to the VCC after Aug. 28 to receive their DBIDS ID card. For more information, contact Tech. Sgt. Jeffrey Smith at 472-1972 or Staff Sgt. Crystal Kesey at 472-1984.
