Boeing (Anaheim) just won a contract for a program called "Cluster
I".  They will be using C/C++, but their subcontractor, Rockwell Collins
(Cedar Rapids) will be using Ada.  I don't know much about Cluster I, but
R.C. will be doing the radio systems.

I don't remember exactly how long, but this contract award was delayed for
several months - probably at least partially due to 9 11.

multi-language ORB.  A single distributed programming environment for all
