Comparing Forms of ID Gets Easier with Security Company’s New Patented Technology

(Vocus/PRWEB) January 21, 2011
Comparing the various forms of ID carried by the nation’s air travelers just became easier and more reliable. Intellicheck Mobilisa, Inc., a global leader in access control and wireless security systems, was issued a patent earlier this month for a new method of comparing information contained in two or more official types of identification, such as driver’s licenses.
The technology allows information on two or more documents to be compared in order to determine whether the information is the same on each. For instance, the name on a driver’s license can now be compared automatically with the name on an airline boarding pass held by the same person.
Intellicheck has incorporated this novel capability into its product line of mobile devices, which are capable of reading barcodes, magnetic stripes, RFID and OCR codes printed on current forms of ID cards. The company’s Defense ID product has been recommended for testing at airports by New York Senator Chuck Schumer to prevent known terrorists on watch lists from boarding planes.
Dr. Nelson Ludlow, CEO of Intellicheck Mobilisa commented, “The ability to quickly scan and compare two or more forms of ID can make traveling through airports safer, as it serves to verify the identity of the ID holder while moving security lines along more quickly. As a security measure, it is far less invasive than, say, full body scanning. We have added to our existing strong patent portfolio with this recent issuance from the US Patent and Trademark Office.”
About Defense IDÃ¢“¢
Defense ID access control system has been employed by over 80 military bases including Andrews Air Force Base and West Point. These devices can scan and compare the information on Drivers Licenses and Passports and other Government IDs to over 100+ databases, and can immediately determine if the ID is fake, if the ID is reported lost or stolen, if the individual has outstanding wants and warrants, and if the individual is on an authorized roster of previously cleared personnel. Defense ID also has a photo capture capability, incident recording and a manual search.
About ScanINNÃ¢“¢ and ID CheckÃ¢“¢
ScanINN and ID Check are commercial applications of Intellicheck Mobilisa’s technology used by Fortune 500 companies. Easy to use, the product functions by simply scanning the bar code or magnetic strip on the back of a driver’s license or any government-issued ID to automate the raw data into usable elements, such as name and address. Any data within the bar code or magnetic stripe will automatically populate the fields to any digital form. The entire process takes about 1 second. The Company maintains the patent for the ability to process this data accurately for all 50 states and Canada.
