TWIC Readers Begin Trial At Boston Airport

Intellicheck Mobilisa : 04 July, 2011  (Application Story)
Transportation Worker Identity Control readers for biometric identity cards undergoing trials by the Massachusetts Port Authority including Boston airport

The Massachusetts Port Authority (Massport) has begun an official pilot test using Intellicheck Mobilisa’s IM2700 TWIC devices.


Massport owns and operates Boston Logan International Airport, two other airports, and the public container and cruise terminals in the Port of Boston.


Pilot testing of Intellicheck Mobilisa’s TWIC device has begun at Massport’s Conley Container Terminal. The pilot will evaluate the device’s portability, reliability and how it withstands day-to-day use.


“Massport is letting us test our device at the Port of Boston,” stated Steve Williams, CEO of Intellicheck Mobilisa. “We look forward to the review and receiving feedback.”


The Transportation Worker Identity Credential, or TWIC, program is a Transportation Security Administration and U.S. Coast Guard initiative to provide 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.
