Adacore agrees licensing with MBDA for development tools

US software company Adacore has announced a global licensing agreement with missile systems company MBDA for various development tools.

The three-year agreement will see MBDA extend its existing contract with Adacore to now include the Spark Pro high-assurance software development toolset, as well as the Gnat Pro development environment.

The combined contract, which covers 80 developers, will enable MBDA to benefit from a single access point for all software and support queries, as well as the advantages of using a single development platform that spans the integrated Spark Pro and Gnat Pro.
