Approximately 175 individuals participated in the Ada Dual-Use Workshop, held on October 19-20, 1993. As you know, DISA has been assigned the responsibility to evaluate current Ada initiatives and align the strategies of the commercial and government sectors. The main objective of the Workshop was to identify ways to increase the use of Ada programming language and related technology in both defense and commercial applications. To accomplish this goal, the workshop was organized into the following four panels academia, government, industry and vendors. Each panel deliberated to determine ways to make Ada more attractive to both DoD and commercial users. The Ada Community views the Workshop as a success. The communitys testimony is reflected in the conclusions and recommendations which will be summarized and presented by the panel chairs during this briefing. After the panel chairs have completed their briefings, DISAs commercialization strategies as derived from the Ada Dual-Use Workshop will be presented. The positive actions identified for the Ada commercialization effort are a direct result of the Ada Communitys participation with the Workshop. Comments and recommendations from the Ada Dual-Use Committee will be solicited using a computer-aided facilitated discussion tool.
