Peterson Air Force Base Secured With Mobilisa's DEFENSE ID®

WASHINGTON, DC--(Marketwire - August 16, 2007) - Air Force Space Command announced on Monday that Peterson Air Force Base, located in Colorado Springs, will be using a high-tech security system called DEFENSE ID®, developed by Mobilisa, Inc., to help protect their base. The Defense ID access control system uses a rugged handheld computer to quickly scan ID cards to support military security and law enforcement personnel and will be used as a first line of defense for preventing unwanted persons access to the base.

"This technology will help deter and detect unauthorized individuals attempting to enter the installation, giving Peterson security forces an additional tool in the Global War on Terrorism," said Earl Gillis, the wing's anti-terrorism officer.

Peterson AFB is headquarters to US Northern Command, NORAD, Air Force Space Command, Army Space Command, the 21st Space Wing and the 302d Airlift Wing. The 21st Space Wing, headquartered at Peterson AFB, is the Air Force's only organization providing missile warning and space control to unified commanders and combat forces worldwide.

"The system is already in use at other military installations worldwide, and its implementation here will help better secure the base," stated Master Sgt. Isaac Lopez, operations support for the 21st Security Forces Squadron.

The information that is scanned from an identity card is compared to over 100+ databases of individuals who are wanted for criminal offenses or are barred from military installations. The system works with military IDs, US and Canadian Drivers Licenses and other government ID cards and therefore requires no need to issue or create special badges -- a major cost savings to the government. DEFENSE ID® is credited in helping security personnel identify and prevent nearly 25,000 unauthorized individuals from gaining entry onto military and federal installations in the last two years.

Mobilisa and Intelli-Check, Inc. (AMEX: IDN), the acknowledged leader in drivers license reading technology, recently announced an agreement to combine the two companies.

Intelli-Check's technology helps assure the authenticity of driver licenses, state issued non-driver and military identification cards. Their patented ID-CHECK technology instantly reads, analyzes, and verifies the encoded data in magnetic stripes and barcodes on government-issue IDs from approximately 60 jurisdictions in the U.S. and Canada to determine if the content and format are valid.
