Real-Time Identification Authentication Solution Alerts Security Officers to Potential Threats
JERICHO, NEW YORK / CRWEPRESSRELEASE / October 13, 2015 - Intellicheck Mobilisa, Inc. (NYSE MKT:IDN), a leader in identity authentication, verification and validation solutions, today announced the Company has been awarded a contract by the Fort Sill Army installation for additional units of its Defense ID™ solution.
The new contract upgrades the Intellicheck system currently in place with a combination of new Defense ID handhelds, workstations, and a Visitor/Vendor Registration and Credentialing Center running on hardened laptop equipment. Expanded use of Intellicheck’s real-time identification authentication solution will increase the capability of installation security personnel to instantly confirm the identity of, and assess the potential threat pertaining to, every individual who seeks access to the Army base.
Located just north of Lawton, Okla., Fort Sill's 94,000 acres serve as home to a military population of approximately 16,500 together with a civilian workforce of about 7,000. Fort Sill is designated as the U.S. Army Fires Center of Excellence (FCoE) and includes the U.S. Army Field Artillery School, U.S. Army Air Defense Artillery School, the Marine Corps Field Artillery MOS School, U.S. Army 31st Air Defense Artillery Brigade, Army Basic Combat Training Center, Non-Commissioned Officer Academy and a Field Artillery Brigade. Approximately 60,000 family members live on post or in the surrounding communities, and there are approximately 23,300 military retirees living in the region. Fort Sill has played a significant role in every major American conflict since 1869.
Security personnel use Defense ID to increase situational awareness at restricted facilities by instantly authenticating the identification of visitors, vendors, and employees seeking site access and enabling rules-based access decision support, while improving operational efficiencies. Security personnel never have to lose sight of a contact as mobile devices scan the bar code of driver licenses from all U.S. states and Canadian Provinces, as well as military and other identification documents issued by government agencies. Defense ID alerts security officers of a potential threat by comparing a visitor’s identification card information with information available from public and government data sources in real time. The system subsequently determines if the identification is fake or stolen, whether the person is on Be-On-the-Look-Out (BOLO) lists, may be the subject of law enforcement wants and warrants, or listed for military base debarments and driving suspensions.
In addition to computer-based applications, the rules-based engine can be set to allow visitation only at certain pre-designated times to specific parts of the site. Defense ID’s durable handheld mobile devices assure base personnel maximum flexibility for patrol and special events.
Intellicheck Mobilisa CEO Dr. William Roof commented, "Defense ID is being increasingly deployed by US Army facilities such as Ft Sill, because it provides instantaneous access to critical information that protects people and property. We know that the security environment is constantly evolving, which is why we have added features and functionality to make our application mobile, interoperable with multiple standard and proprietary information sources and flexible in terms of programmable rules. We have enjoyed a long partnership with Fort Sill and it is a privilege to continue to provide our troops and their extended community with our industry leading solution. As a graduate of the Field Artillery Officer Basic Course (FAOBC) at Fort Sill, I am particularly pleased to be working, once again, with our terrific soldiers there. Fort Sill is among the 23 military installations and 16 U.S. ports across the US that currently deploy Defense ID and we expect increasing adoption of our military-grade security solution."
