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
more information and/or corroboration?
