Ada 95 is an international standard object-oriented programming language. The programming language was the ratified in 1995 as a major revision of Ada, an earlier version developed under contract for the United States Department of Defense (DoD) for use in high-integrity systems. Ada 95 includes support for object-oriented programming, hierarchical libraries and inheritance. It also offers improved real-time mechanisms and better support for concurrent processing than its predecessors. This comprehensive language continues to be used primarily in safety-critical applications within aviation, aerospace, military systems and medical devices where reliability is crucial.
