Fort Stewart and Hunter Army Air Field will be stepping up security with the installation’s new Intellicheck Mobilisa computerized identification scanning system.
Intellicheck Mobilisa Inc. is a technology company that provides access control and wireless security systems. The company, based in Port Townsend, Wash., recently received a $250,000 contract to provide its Defense ID access control system to Fort Stewart.
The Fort Stewart/Hunter Army Air Field contract includes equipment, software, installation, training and warranties.
Media chief Kevin Larson said the new scanning system equipment has arrived, but has not yet been installed.
“The new system will be used at all of the installation’s access control points (gates),” Larson said.
The Defense ID system will scan individuals’ drivers’ licenses, military ID cards and passports, and compare the scanned information with watch lists to determine if they should be allowed access to the post, Larson explained.
Fort Benning was the first military installation in Georgia to buy the Defense ID system.
