Our Next Meeting is scheduled for
Thursday, 14 October 1999.
Joe Wisniewski will be speaking on
A High Level Overview of the Ada Semantic Interface Specification (ASIS)
at Lockheed Martin in Rockville, Maryland
The ease of making ASIS-based tools allows code developers of Ada applications with a powerful capability to develop their own tools to support their own specific analysis needs.

firm, Commercial Software Solutions, Ltd. Joe has been involved
in large-scale software engineering activities for 15 years. He
specializes in aviation and defense-related projects including

multi-target) new generation debugger TOLD (Takeoff and
Landing software for Citation X and Gulfsteam V aircraft).
Joe has designed EFIS for Falcon 2000, and several Ada/ASIS
applications for Grumman and Lockheed Martin.
