You can learn about a CORBA product at OIS.com.  (There are other products 
also).

I can offer some info about one large application that uses Ada with 
CORBA.  The Integrated Computer Control System of the National Ignition 
Facility laser operates a very large physics experimental facility.  (I 
worked on that system before I retired in 2002).  The facility is located 
at Lawrence Livermore National Lab and some public information is available 
at www.llnl.gov/nif/

Papers that describe that control system can be found at SigAda 2002 and at 
the proceedings of the International Conference on Accelerator and Large 
Experimental Physics Control Systems  (ICALEPCS) in 2001 and 2003.

The 2001 ICALEPCS had nearly a dozen papers on the NIF project, and several 
other CORBA-based systems were reported there as well.   The Proceedings of 
ICALEPCS 2001 are available at 
http://www.slac.stanford.edu/econf/C011127/proceedings.html.

There are two NIF papers at the 2003 conference, at

Hope some of these will be useful
