NOTE: Before individuals transmit personally identifiable information (PII) or other sensitive data to Dynetics, it is recommended that they apply appropriate physical, administrative, and technical protocols to safeguard their privacy. Once Dynetics receives PII or sensitive personal data, we secure it from unauthorized access, use, or disclosure.

If you don't have access to DISS, please contact Visitor Control - Collateral Clearances for another method.

When you check in at the front desk, you will be asked a series of questions related to your visit and equipment in your possession. You will be required to show government-issued picture identification.
Normally, this will be a state-issued driver’s license for U.S. citizens and a passport for foreign nationals. If you are presenting a driver’s license from a state that is not in compliance under Department of Homeland Security guidelines, a secondary form of photo ID will be required. Click here to find out if your state is compliant.
Dynetics Visitor Control personnel will inventory your equipment and provide you with a property pass for any equipment approved to accompany you during your visit and to use within and when exiting Dynetics. This pass verifies ownership and authority to possess the equipment while in the facility and to take it with you when leaving. Various signs are posted at the building entrances advising you of security requirements. If your visit will take place over several days, you must register each day with the Visitor Control staff.
Upon completion of your visit registration, your Dynetics POC will be contacted to verify your visit time and location. If you have arrived early, the POC may ask you to wait in the lobby until the scheduled visit time. If you have not made prior arrangements with your Dynetics POC, the visit may be denied. If the visit is approved, you will be issued a Dynetics visitor badge.
All approved visitors to Dynetics are escorted throughout the facility by an authorized member of the Dynetics staff. If you wish to visit multiple people within Dynetics, you must register each visit with Visitor Control, which will verify the acceptance of the visit with each Dynetics POC.
If you are not a U.S. citizen, a completed Dynetics Foreign Visitor Request Form must be provided to firstname.lastname@example.org via encrypted email (or fax to (256) 705-2323) or to your Dynetics POC. Please remember to bring your passport. If you are a U.S. permanent resident, please remember to bring your permanent residency card.
