This technical report has been developed by the Center for Software Engineering, US Army CECOM to evaluate the Ada Compiler Evaluation Capability ACEC Version 1.0 benchmark suite for measuring the performance of Ada compilers meant for programming real time systems. The ACEC benchmarks have been analyzed extensively with respect to their measuring of Ada real time features such as tasking, memory management, inputoutput, scheduling and delay statement, Chapter 13 feature, pragmas, interrupt handling, subprogram overhead, numeric computations etc. For each of the features that have been analyzed, additional benchmarks have been proposed. Finally, the ACEC benchmarks that measure Ada features important for programming real-time systems have been run on two Ada compilers, namely the HP Ada compiler self-hosted on HP 900350 and the Verdix Ada compiler hosted on the Sun 360 and targeted to a Motorola 68020 bare machine and their results listed.
