Intellicheck Mobilisa Awarded TWIC Contract

Tuesday, December 29, 2009

Intellicheck Mobilisa (NYSE Amex: IDN) announced that they were awarded a contract with the Port of New York/New Jersey to supply them with mobile Transportation Worker Identity Credential (TWIC) readers and access control systems to support the Department of Homeland Security TWIC Pilot project.

The Transportation Worker Identity Credential, or TWIC, program is a Transportation Security Administration and U.S. Coast Guard initiative that provides tamper-resistant biometric identification cards to port facility workers. TWIC cards have become a mandatory requirement for access to all U.S. ports as of April 15, 2009. The Intellicheck Mobilisa TWIC reader handheld device is used to validate TWIC credentials; the company believes such a universal reader will ultimately be needed at each of the more than 175 seaports in the United States.

“Intellicheck Mobilisa was among the first to offer a Department of Homeland Security TWIC reader. Our mobile TWIC platform is the first of its kind to be implemented in the field. Given our Defense ID System is a proven commodity in use at military bases throughout the US, we are confident that our TWIC reader will see the same level of success throughout our nation’s port facilities,” stated Steve Williams, COO of Intellicheck Mobilisa.
