What: DEFENSE ID®, an advanced ID card verification system, uses a mobile, handheld computer to support military security and law enforcement personnel and is used as a first line of defense for preventing unwanted access.

Mobilisa Inc. puts a ruggedized PDA with a bar code and magnetic stripe reader in the hands of officers and guards. The information that is scanned from an identity card is compared to over 140+ databases of individuals who are wanted for criminal offenses or are barred from certain military installations. DEFENSE ID® provides technology and services for real time authentication of identification documents provided at any point of entry or inspection. The system works with existing military and government ID cards and therefore requires no need to issue or create a special ID card, a major cost savings to the government.

The system has helped security personnel identify and prevent over 10,000 unauthorized individuals from gaining entry onto military installations.

A commercial version of the system also scans drivers' licenses and passports. DEFENSE ID® has a wide range of civilian applications from preventing ID fraud at banks, to validating ID cards and producing manifests in transportation industry, and to giving law enforcement officials a handheld tool that can instantly check wants and warrants.
