PORT TOWNSEND, Wash., Aug. 25 (UPI) -- Marine Corps Base Quantico in Virginia has contracted Intelli-Check-Mobilisa Inc. for the company's security identification technologies.

Intelli-Check-Mobilisa was awarded a $160,000 contract from Marine Corps Base Quantico for its Defense ID security equipment. The installation contract of the security identification system, which officials say was completed Friday, also includes service and training support.

Marine Corps Base Quantico is home to the FBI's training center as well as the Marine Corps University's Officer Candidate School.

With the installation of the Defense ID technology, Marine Corps Base Quantico is now equipped with an ID system that enables a secured verification of encoded data from government-issue IDs, ensuring valid access to the military installation.

"We've stopped over 50,000 bad guys with Defense ID while making access to the base faster," Steve Williams, Intelli-Check-Mobilisa chief operations officer, said in a statement.
