On December 15, 2015, Computer Projects of Illinois (CPI) successfully implemented the QW-HFN form and message transaction to allow Fort Knox, Kentucky, Chaffee Gate Security personnel the ability to vet individuals wanting access to the post 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

The new functionality, provided by CPI, allows Gate Security personnel, located at the visitor’s center, to more efficiently and effectively grant or deny post access to those requesting it. At the Chaffee Gate visitors center the individual must provide a valid ID to the security personnel. Security personnel then scans the barcode located on back of the ID with a USB attached barcode scanner. The information obtained from the bar-code scan is automatically populated into the CPI OpenFox® Messenger Workstation form QW-HFN. Security personnel verifies the scan and submits the transaction to the Kentucky State Police LINK system (CPI OpenFox® Message Switching Information Broker) which in turns spawns numerous transactions through local law enforcement databases, the National Crime Information Center (NCIC) and Nlets (The International Justice and Public Safety Network). The responses are returned to the security personnel CPI OpenFox® Messenger Workstation to be reviewed and vetted by the officer for approval or denial of entry onto the post.  Fort Knox plans to expand this functionality to its remaining gate entry points.
