AdaCore Joins Rust Foundation as Silver Member

Company brings extensive certification and safety standards experience to the Rust community

NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)--#AdaCore--AdaCore, a trusted provider of software development and verification tools, is pleased to announce that it is now a Silver Member of the Rust Foundation, an independent non-profit organization dedicated to stewarding the Rust programming language and ecosystem.

For over 25 years, AdaCore has been committed to supporting the needs of safety- and mission-critical industries with high integrity software development tools and services. AdaCore initially focused on Ada, a state-of-the-art programming language designed specifically for developing long-lived, safety-critical, certified software. Over the years, this focus has extended beyond the Ada language to its formally verifiable SPARK subset, C and C++, and Simulink® and Stateflow® models. Now, AdaCore is partnering with Ferrous Systems, a technology company specializing in the Rust programming language, to share its expertise in safety-certified toolchains with the Rust safety community. The partnership is currently on track to bring Rust into ASIL-D-level environments. One of the first outcomes of this work is the publication of a Language Specification document available here.

“AdaCore is thrilled to join the Rust Foundation,” said Quentin Ochem, Chief Product Officer, AdaCore. “We are looking forward to extending our long-standing commitment to high integrity languages and safety-certified embedded development to the Rust programming language.”
