DDS Wireless' StrataGen Announces $6.8 Million of Contracts With MTA New York City Transit

RICHMOND, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - Dec. 7, 2011) - DDS Wireless International Inc. ("DDS" or "the Company") (TSX:DD) announces today that its transit business unit, StrataGen Systems Inc., has signed two contracts with MTA New York City Transit ("NYC Transit"), a long standing StrataGen customer. Combined, these contracts have a base value of $6.1 million, with options up to $6.8 million.

The new contracts significantly expand StrataGen's successful implementation of its ADEPT™ Intermodal Trip Planning (ITP) application which was initially rolled out in 2010. The Intermodal Trip Planning application integrates NYC Transit's Access-A-Ride paratransit service with its extensive fixed route system, providing NYC Transit with operational flexibility and increased efficiencies. StrataGen was also awarded a related contract to expand the functionality of NYC Transit's Paratransit Interactive Voice Response (IVR) system, previously awarded to StrataGen in early 2010, to accommodate the additional functionality of the new ITP application. NYC Transit currently provides 27,000 trips per day through its paratransit service and is considered the largest system in North America.

"We are pleased to receive these new contract awards from MTA New York City Transit," states Matt Scheuing, President of StrataGen Systems Inc. "NYC Transit is a very innovative client and we look forward to collaborating on the delivery of these applications that not only drive efficiency but also allow NYC Transit to continue to provide an important service to their ridership."

StrataGen anticipates that most of the ITP and IVR contract deliverables will take place through the end of 2012, with some portions of the projects stretching into early 2013. Minimum contracted maintenance revenue of $1.7 million over five years will start following project completion.
