EXTON, PA, March 2, 2005 (PRNewswire-FirstCall) -- WPCS International Inc., through its subsidiary companies, has announced it recently was awarded $3.2 million in contracts for wireless infrastructure services, general construction and specialty communication systems.

Department of Environmental Protection, Aero Ambulance, N.J. Motor Vehicle Commission, Sanchez Elementary School, Bardin Elementary School, the city of Colfax, Calif., and Six Flags Theme Park.

Also included in the awards is a larger scale wireless supervisory control and data acquisition (SCADA) project for the El Dorado Irrigation District located in California. This project, which has a contract value of $1.4 million, will provide the El Dorado Irrigation District with additional drinking water capacity for its customers.

The market sector for specialty communication systems is still in its very early stages with tremendous revenue growth potential over the next few years. With each successfully completed project, WPCS continues to build its stellar reputation, which we believe will enhance our ability to capture substantial market share."
