Here is information about how Ada has been used in a variety of (mostly) non-military applications. Select a project to see the details of how Ada was used in that project.
You might also be interested to look at The "Who's Using Ada" Report. Although it wasn't updated since beginning of 1993 it still contains a lot of useful information. More up-to-date is a very concise list of interesting projects categorized by domain (draft version).
Ada 95 has been successfully used in scientific high performance computing. Code developed by Martin J. Stift is capable of synthesizing the integrated polarized spectrum of a rotating magnetic star (the so-called Oblique Rotator), and has been successfully executed in parallel on several processors of a Silicon Graphics Power Challenge XL symmetric multiprocessing server. Mr. Stift found that, for the calculation of stellar spectra over large wavelength intervals and of stellar atmospheres, the Ada tasking model is much better suited than High Performance Fortran.
