Innova Holdings, Inc. to Showcase Robotic Hardware and Software for Unmanned Vehicles at World's Largest Unmanned Systems Symposium and Exhibition: AUVSI's Unmanned Vehicles 2006

Innova Robotics Will Be Exhibiting Unmanned Ground, Air, and Naval Vehicles, as Well as the Communication and Control Software Developed by the CoroWare, Inc. Subsidiary of Innova Holdings Which Supports Aggregated Monitoring and Control of Multiple Robots to Achieve Complex Coordinated Missions

FORT MYERS, FL -- (MARKET WIRE) -- August 22, 2006 -- Innova Holdings, Inc. (OTCBB: IVHG), a robotics technology firm providing software and hardware systems to the service, personal, and industrial robot markets, today announced that its Innova Robotics and CoroWare subsidiaries will be exhibiting at the Association for Unmanned Vehicle Systems International (AUVSI) Unmanned Vehicles 2006 Symposium and Exposition, August 29 - 31, 2006, at the Gaylord Palms Resort and Convention Center in Orlando, FL.

"This is a strategic event at which Innova Holdings will showcase its technical expertise and advanced robotic solutions to the project leaders who will be searching for advanced technologies and technological expertise," says Walter Weisel, Chairman and CEO of Innova Holdings, Inc. "Within the Innova Robotics and CoroWare subsidiaries there are well over 200 man-years of technical expertise in robotics, control, communications, and software systems."

The Innova Robotics exhibit in booth number 1001 will feature several models of unmanned robotic ground vehicles from the Mesa Robotics, Inc. product line for which Innova Holdings has the exclusive worldwide marketing and sales rights. Demonstrations will highlight the capabilities of the communication and control systems, which employ a state-of-the-art user interface and can support the integration, coordination, and communication among multiple unmanned land, sea, and air vehicles and among multiple cooperating control units to enable distributed communications and data sharing between the vehicles and among mission controllers. The exhibit will also show aerial and naval unmanned vehicles.

Unmanned robotic systems are gaining momentum as applications for missions including search and recovery, reconnaissance, and border patrol are being developed with increasingly sophisticated emerging technologies. One of the major challenges to overcome is the ability to operate and coordinate multiple robotic vehicles from a single command and control center, and to share data and control interfaces among robot platforms from different manufacturers. Innova Holdings believes that it has the software systems that will maximize operator capabilities and enable interoperability across platforms so that unmanned vehicles can work as a unit to accomplish the mission. Innova Robotics' state-of-the-art platforms are applicable for military, space, government, Homeland Security, law enforcement and civilian markets.

Innova Holdings also has strategic development relationships with Embry Riddle Aeronautical University (ERAU) and the University of South Florida (USF).
