Address:        Lockhead Martin Corporation
                9211 Corporate Boulevard.
                Rockville, Maryland 20874

Presentation:   A high level overview of ASIS.

                ASIS is a set of Ada packages, the spec of which is open and
                published by Ada compiler vendors that supplies an interface
                to the semantics of Ada programs.
                        Formally speaking, ASIS is an interface between an Ada
                environment as defined by ISO/IEC 8652:1995 (Ada Reference
                Manual) and any tool requiring information from this
                Since it is a published interface and is supported by multiple
                Ada vendors, the interface is independent (as is possible)
                the compiler implementation.
                        The ease of making ASIS-based tools enables code
                developers of Ada applications with a powerful capability to
                develop their own tools to support their own specific analysis
