Intellicheck Mobilisa wins $220K contract to provide TWIC readers to Port of New Orleans
Port Townsend, WA-based Intellicheck Mobilisa, a provider of identity solutions and wireless security systems, has been awarded a $220K contract to provide its IM2610 TWIC Plus readers to the Port of New Orleans in Louisiana. The new contract is for a web-hosted TWIC card reading system. The readers will provide TWIC card authentication and Be On the Lookout (BOLO) checks.
In July 2013, Intellicheck Mobilisa’s IM2610 and IM2620 products became the first mobile readers of TWIC cards to be approved by the Transportation Security Administration (TSA). The two TWIC reader products passed TSA’s rigorous testing and are officially on the Qualified Technology List of approved products. In addition to reading TWIC cards, these products scan driver’s licenses and military IDs, can match person-of-interest lookups with law enforcement lists and authorized lists, and are capable of integrating with existing port security systems.
“This contract is another example of how our reorganized sales staff has become a more effective sales engine, and how more ports are using our TWIC readers to protect their property and personnel,” said Dr. Nelson Ludlow, CEO of Intellicheck Mobilisa. “The Port of New Orleans is the sixth-largest port in the United States in terms of volume of cargo handled. We believe our TWIC readers will offer port personnel and visitors an added layer of security and strengthen the safety measures in place at this important commercial hub.”
Intellicheck Mobilisa provides wireless technology and identity systems for various applications, including mobile and handheld access control and security systems for the government, military and commercial markets.
