About a year ago for some reason I was going through finding people using IronPython - Here's what I came up with back then:

Tooling support:

Project: Cell CT

URL: http://www.asufoundation.org/aboutus/newsmedia/tabid/178/mid/791/newsid791/325/Default.aspx

Description of project:

I am using python as the scripting language for a CT scan projection.  We are developing a high performance system for doing CT scans of individual cells and small tissues.  The system needs to be easily adaptable, reliable and fast.   Python allows the users to reconfigure the scripts easily, without knowledge of the multithreaded lower environment.

Maperitive [currently free + commercial version in the future]
A desktop GIS/cartography software written in C#, running on Win, Linux and Mac (using Mono). Primarily oriented towards use of free geography sources like OpenStreetMap. IronPython is currently used experimentally to extend the cartography capabilities (http://braincrunch.tumblr.com/post/4286086882/maperitive-python-scripting-introduction). In future IronPython will be used as a toolkit for application automation, GIS processing and mapmaking.

I'd like to create a 'Who's using IronPython?' to show the IronPython
is being used and maybe help drive adoption. (See
http://www.boost.org/users/uses_open.html for an example).

What I need:
Company Name [commercial]
Product [commercial] or Project [OSS] Name
Description of product/project

If your own product uses IronPython, or you know of one that does,
please let me know.
