do so. A paper (CytometryML, Binary Data Standards) illustrating our work

Subject: Ada health and status
I work supporting a DoD Agency enterprise standards program. We have a
request to evaluate the status of the Ada programming language. Could
you point me to information on any metrics that indicate the health and
status of Ada? For example, information on the revenue generated over
time for compilers and other Ada tools, the trend in the amount of Ada
code being delivered over time, etc.
I was very involved in the early growth of Ada (I even had a Symbolics
with an Ada compiler) but I have not been involved for a number of
Thanks - Bill
