Many of the systems described on these two pages have detailed write ups located at the above Web pages.

Use of Ada in non-DOD Government programs as well as commercial enterprises is on the rise. It is increasingly the language of choice for some application domains, and software developers worldwide who are discovering its unique benefits. Ada's commercial use dominates over its military use in Europe and Asia.

Here we see some specific examples of Ada use in non-DOD applications. The FAA Display System Replacement (DSR) with 2.3M source lines of code, the Nippon Communication Products with over 4M source lines of code, and the Boeing 777 with 10M source lines of code, to point out a few, exemplify the use of Ada in larger, more complex systems.

Ada has been chosen for all Boeing 777 software, and you are probably flying on an Ada-developed system when you travel on a Boeing 747.
