PORT TOWNSEND, Wash.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Intellicheck Mobilisa, Inc. (NYSE MKT: IDN), the industry leader in identity authentication and validation solutions, today announced it has been awarded an initial purchase contract in excess of $300 thousand by the California Military Department for Intellicheck’s Defense ID® system. The field proven site security solution will provide real-time identity awareness and secure access control for persons seeking entrance to a number of the California Army National Guard's facilities across the state.
Under the new contract, security personnel will have the ability to positively identify and credential every individual who seeks access to California Army National Guard facilities using handheld mobile units communicating with a single installation control server. The purchase agreement for the recently feature-enhanced solution includes the ability to query information from the National Crime Information Center (NCIC). This capability enhances security personnel's ability to thoroughly scrutinize and evaluate those visitors requesting access and assess whether they potentially pose threats to our service personnel and their facilities.
The California Military Department supports the operations for more than 23,000 troops with a diverse organization including the California Army National Guard, the California Air National Guard, the California State Military Reserve and the California Youth and Community Programs. Led by the Adjutant General, the California National Guard is responsible for the command, leadership and management of the state’s Army National Guard and Air National Guard. The National Guard has both a federal and state mission with a dual role of both assisting state government in times of disaster and the country when fighting overseas. The California Military Department maintains a headquarters complex in Sacramento and facilities throughout the state.
Unlike competitive solutions that lack full regulatory compliance, the highest degree of accuracy, and real-time capabilities on both mobile and existing fixed infrastructures, Intellicheck’s technology uniquely provides accurate, real-time identification authentication and situational awareness that is fully regulatory compliant, can be deployed on mobile devices, and is easily integrated and customized into existing infrastructures. The Defense ID security system scans and authenticates driver licenses from all 50 U.S. states, all Canadian provinces and most Mexican States, as well as military and other identification documents issued by government agencies. The system initially determines if the identification document is fake or stolen, and then alerts security officers of a potential threat in real-time by comparing a visitor’s identification card information with information available from both public and confidential government data sources. This information includes whether the person is on Be-On-the-Lookout (BOLO) lists, the subject of law enforcement wants and warrants, or listed for military base debarments and driving suspensions. Defense ID’s durable handheld mobile devices assure base personnel maximum flexibility regardless of whether a device is dropped or exposed to adverse weather conditions.
Intellicheck CEO Dr. William Roof commented, "We are confident that Defense ID will provide a heightened level of situational awareness and security for the service personnel and citizens in the California Military Department facilities and surrounding communities. Having the real-time capability to determine whether visitors and vendors seeking access to these facilities are legitimate, or present a threat, can save lives." Dr. Roof, a 30-year military veteran, pointed out that Intellicheck’s field-proven security solution is currently deployed to protect 23 military installations and 16 U.S. ports across the country. "We are very optimistic about the growing adoption of our situational awareness and site security solutions. I am confident that our ability to provide a superior level of real-time identification authentication, situational awareness and customer support will provide significant results," he said.
