Intellicheck Mobilisa Obtains U.S. Patent for Enhanced ID Check Technology That Assesses ID Bearers by Criminal History and Threat Level

Intellicheck Mobilisa, Inc. (NYSE MKT:IDN), a global leader in identity solutions and wireless security systems, has obtained a U.S. patent for a technology that reads the information encoded on an ID card, identifies a range of possible individuals whose name and description (e.g., date of birth, age, gender, etc.) either exactly or closely match that on the card, and displays one or more of the identified individuals to a system user based on environmental conditions. This is Intellicheck Mobilisa’s 18th U.S. or foreign patent to issue.

Unique to Intellicheck Mobilisa’s solution is that the software uses information about national or local threat levels to determine which individuals to display. For example, threats generated by the Department of Homeland Security impact the level of detail of the search applied in reviewing a person’s ID card and can assist in ranking individuals whose identities are displayed. Individuals with relevant criminal activity (e.g., past terrorist activity) may be assigned a higher “score” and displayed more prominently. Furthermore, the technology allows the use of redress information where a previous match has been demonstrated to not belong to an individual, thus allowing the software’s matching algorithms to improve over time.

The new technology described in the ‘446 patent is designed for military, Homeland Security, and seaport users. It makes it easier to verify that an individual who presents an ID card with a specific name, for example “John Smith,” is indeed the same “John Smith” who is currently listed in a criminal database for a particular criminal act. The new technology also presents users with information in a manner that ensures the right level of scrutiny is applied to an individual seeking entry or authorization under different circumstances.

Dr. Nelson Ludlow, President and CEO of Intellicheck Mobilisa, said, “This new technology substantially increases the accuracy in real-life scenarios with which a determination can be made regarding a match to wanted and criminal databases. This is expected to help law enforcement officials decrease the frequency of false positives and provide the most useful information quickly to law enforcement.”
