TSA approval for biometric readers

Intellicheck Mobilisa : 31 July, 2013  (New Product)
Mobile biometric readers from Intellicheck Mobilisa approved by the USA's TSA for use in the identification of transportation workers
TSA approval for biometric readers

Intellicheck Mobilisa's TWIC Reader Plus Models IM2610 and IM2620 have become the first mobile readers of TWIC cards to be approved by the Transportation Security Administration (TSA).

James Orgill, TSA’s
TWIC Qualified Technology List (QTL) Program Manager, stated Friday in a letter to Intellicheck Mobilisa that “[your products] successfully completed each of the 140 QTL scenarios and will be included in a published list.” That list is published on TSA’s website.

Dr Nelson Ludlow, CEO of Intellicheck Mobilisa, said, “TSA has created a robust ID security system at port facilities by requiring the use of
TWIC cards. We call our product ‘TWIC Plus’ as it not only reads TWIC cards but also scans driver’s licenses and military IDs, matches person-of-interest lookups with law enforcement lists and authorized lists, and is capable of integrating with existing port security systems. Both the lighter and smaller Model IM2610 and the more ruggedized Model IM2620 incorporate these features, which were not contained in our previous TWIC readers.”

TWIC is an initiative of the TSA and U.S. Coast Guard to provide tamper-resistant biometric identification cards to port facility workers. The US government has given guidance this year that approximately 550 locations will require QTL-approved TWIC readers and approximately 1,500 locations are on the “recommended” list for QTL-approved TWIC readers. Intellicheck’s TWIC readers are currently in use at major ports on both coasts.
