International Automated Systems, Inc. [IAUS.OB] Signs Contracts for its Patented Turbine and Solar Collection System

SALEM, UTAH- International Automated Systems, Inc. [IAUS.OB] ("IAS") announced today that it has signed contracts to build three power plants using IAS's patented propulsion turbine and solar thermal heat collection system. The locations and sizes of the three plants are currently undisclosed, however, IAS has already received permission to build the first plant by local development and zoning committees. The initial phase of construction should be in progress before December of 2003.

IAS's patented Propulsion Turbine is a bladeless turbine that can be produced for much less than existing expensive multistage turbines and offers improved performance. Unlike traditional high-end turbines, IAS's turbine can be driven by low quality steam using either single phase or BI-phase (steam + water) flow. By the very nature of its design, many of the surrounding components become less expensive. Small to midsize power systems, which in the past have been cost prohibitive are now affordable for nearly any home or business.
