Intellicheck Mobilisa, Inc. (NYSE Amex: IDN), a leading technology company specializing in wireless and identity systems, announced today that a seaport has purchased the Company’s IM2700 mobile Transportation Worker Identity Credential (TWIC) reader system. The contract, valued at $1 million, is the largest single TWIC sale in the Company’s history.
Steve Williams, Chief Executive Officer of Intellicheck Mobilisa, said, “This is the largest TWIC sale we have made to one facility and a market we’ve been creating and leading. The port wanted to increase their security efforts in order to meet the new security requirements associated with the use of TWIC cards. Our IM2700 TWIC reader was a natural addition to their security procedures.”
The TWIC program is an initiative of the Transportation Security Administration and U.S. Coast Guard 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. Intellicheck Mobilisa’s TWIC reader handheld device is used to validate TWIC cards. The company believes such a universal reader will ultimately be needed at each of the more than 175 seaports in the U.S. Intellicheck Mobilisa’s TWIC reader is currently in use at major port facilities in California, Massachusetts, New Jersey, Texas and the State of Washington.
