Major Seaport Chooses Intellicheck Mobilisa TWIC Reader

Intellicheck Mobilisa Inc., a provider of access control and wireless security systems, announced that another major seaport agreed to immediately begin pilot testing its new TWIC reader handheld device.

The seaport is among North America’s top ten container ports and represents the company’s third pilot test program for the device, with IDN’s TWIC reader also currently being pilot tested at major seaports in Washington State and California.

“We are pleased to have our TWIC reader undergoing pilot testing now at three major ports in the United States,” said Dr. Nelson Ludlow, CEO of Intellicheck Mobilisa. “We believe the speed with which we’ve been able to secure these test programs to be a good indication of seaport demand for a device with TWIC reading capability.”

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.

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.

The objective of the pilot test is to evaluate the TWIC card scanning system in a real-world security environment.
