Ada ON BOARD AN INDIAN LIGHT COMBAT AIRCRAFT
DDC-I's Spring Real Time Journal reports that the DDC-I Ada Compiler System for the Intel i386 (DACS-80386 PM) has been selected for the Light Combat Aircraft (LCA), which is under construction by the Aeronautical Development Agency in Bangalore, India.
The LCA is the world's smallest, light weight, multi-role combat aircraft designed to meet the requirements of the Indian Air Force as its frontline multi-mission single seater tactical aircraft during the period 2000-2020.
The DDC-I Ada Compiler System is used to implement the Avionics System of the Mission Computer, which is based on a dual Intel i386 architecture.

DDC-I Ada COMPILER SYSTEM INTEGRATES WITH RATIONAL APEX
The DDC-I Ada Compiler System (DACS) has recently been integrated with Rational Software Corporation's Rational Apex. DACS can now be used from within the Rational Apex development environment.
Engineers will benefit from this integration which allows them to use Rational Apex to compile and link Ada applications from within the tool. Users can now take advantage of both working in the Rational Apex environment and getting the quality of DDC-I code generation.
