TWIC reader trials to be held in Washington port

Intellicheck Mobilisa : 03 April, 2009  (Application Story)
Card readers from Intellicheck Mobilisa to be pilot tested as part of the US Transportation Worker Identity Credential program at a Washington State port
Intellicheck Mobilisa will be pilot testing its TWIC Reader Solution at a major port in Washington State.

"We believe that the ability to validate TWIC credentials on our rugged, mobile device will offer a flexible range of capabilities for improving port security. We are very excited to be working with the port on this pilot program," said Dr. Nelson Ludlow, CEO of Intellicheck Mobilisa.

The Transportation Worker Identity Credential, or TWIC, program is a TSA and US Coast Guard initiative to provide tamper-resistant biometric identification cards to port facility workers. TWIC cards will become a mandatory requirement for access to all US ports as of April 15, 2009.

"Intellicheck Mobilisa was among the first to offer a Department of Homeland Security TWIC reader. Given that Mobilisa's Defense ID System is a proven commodity in use at military bases throughout the US, we are confident that this reader will prove itself during this trial period," stated Steve Williams, COO of Intellicheck Mobilisa.

The objective of the pilot test is to evaluate the TWIC card scanning system in a real-world security environment. While there is no obligation to purchase the system under the terms of this agreement, the ultimate goal of this pilot is for feedback regarding the functionality and features of the IM2700 Mobile TWIC Reader Handheld.
