   My company, Newport instruments is still using Ada and will continue to
do so. A paper (CytometryML, Binary Data Standards) illustrating our work
can be found at www.newportinstruments.com in the CytometryML section.

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
   years.
   
   Thanks - Bill
