Tom Rhoads claimed it was written largely in C, by Raytheon and
Hughes. That jibes better with my sense that Raytheon has been
using C/C++ rather than Ada for their ATC systems. Lockheed-Martin
(nee' IBM Fed. systems and then Loral) uses Ada for theirs.

Which piece of the information? Does anyone else have
