Intelli-Check – Mobilisa has announced it will soon launch its latest product, the IM 2700 - Transportation Worker Card Reader.
A rugged, mobile, handheld computer which reads the newly-developed Transportation Worker Identification Credential, or TWIC, the IM2700 can quickly access ID card information via several methods.
“As a leader in access-control systems that use government issued ID cards, we recognized early-on the importance of the new TWIC program,” Dr. Nelson Ludlow, CEO of Intelli-Check – Mobilisa said.
“Our newest product, the IM2700, builds upon our already successful and proven line of access-control security products for the Defense Department and Law Enforcement and makes them even better. We are excited be the first company to develop a mobile handheld system capable of reading these new cards.”
The Intelli-Check - Mobilisa IM2700 system reads the encoded information on the TWIC card and verifies the information. Additionally, it has a built-in PIN capability and fingerprint matching to further verify the person’s identity.
The U.S. Government estimates that over 1.5 million transportation workers will be required to have TWIC cards.
Intelli-Check – Mobilisa develops and markets wireless technology and identity systems for various applications including: mobile and handheld wireless devices for the government, military and commercial markets.
Earlier this month, Intelli-Check – Mobilisa announced that it was awarded a $1 million contract to further develop wireless buoys for the U.S. Navy, using its Wireless over Water (WOW) technology.
Intelli-Check – Mobilisa is currently developing environmental/security buoys for the use of port security and environmental monitoring of our nation's waterways.
These buoys are being designed in a manner that enables them to be adapted to several different situations to monitor anything in, on, or above the water.
