Intellicheck Mobilisa Announces Issuance of U.S. Patent

Wednesday, January 12, 2011

Port Townsend, WA -- Intellicheck Mobilisa, Inc. (NYSE AMEX: IDN), a global leader in access control and wireless security systems, has been issued U.S. Patent No. 7,860,318 relating to a document comparison system. The issuance of the '318 patent brings Intellicheck Mobilisa's current portfolio to 8 U.S., 2 Canadian and 1 U.K. patents, as well as additional U.S. and International patent applications pending.

The issuance of the '318 patent reinforces the innovative nature of Intellicheck Mobilisa's security solutions involving documents. The technology described in the patent relates to a system and method for comparing information contained in at least two documents. Like information on different documents is compared to determine whether the information is the same on each document. For instance, a name contained on an individual’s driver’s license is automatically compared with a name contained on the individual's airline boarding pass.

The company’s proprietary technology is utilized in its mobile devices that are capable of reading barcodes, magnetic stripes, RFID and OCR codes printed on current forms of ID cards. The company’s Defense ID product, access control system, and ruggedized mobile ID reader 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, “A key strength and value driver for the company is our patents, which solidify our position as a leader in the ID reading technology market.”

Dr. Ludlow continued, “We can make traveling through airports safer, really verify the ID holder, move you along faster, and be less invasive than full body scanning. Our products are commercially deployed at Fortune 500 retailers including hotels, banks, and cell phone stores. We turn a slow form into a fast form by scanning IDs to complete the registration process, much quicker and more secure then using pen and paper, while eliminating data entry error.”

Dr. Ludlow concluded, “Our technology turns the most common card that everyone has, the driver’s license, into a smart card, and that’s valuable. We add to our existing strong patent portfolio with the recent issuance from the US Patent and Trademark Office.”
