Aura Receives 5 New Military Prototype Orders

EL SEGUNDO, Calif.--May 17, 2006--Aura Systems, Inc. (Pink Sheets:AUSI) announced today that during the last several weeks it has received initial orders for five different defense related programs. These new applications are in addition to a number of ongoing military and defense contractor purchases of the Viper, the Company's patented mobile power solution. The Viper is the military version of the AuraGen.

Mr. Melvin Gagerman, Aura's Chairman, said, "The awareness of the VIPER is expanding across the defense industry as more organizations become familiar with its capability and performance. This recognition of the advantages of the VIPER has been clearly demonstrated in the last several years in combat conditions in both Iraq and Afghanistan by many vehicles equipped with the VIPER. While the new programs are for initial test units, we believe that they could potentially result in significant follow up orders."
