AeroDef Manufacturing 2016 with Composites Manufacturing Event

SME’s AeroDef Manufacturing with Composites Manufacturing will bring together the leading companies and executives from aerospace and defense manufacturing to highlight the latest technology options and trends February 8-10, 2016 at the Long Beach Convention Center. This annual technical conference and exhibition not only offers a hands-on look at solutions for aerospace and defense, but also provides opportunities to discuss industry advances and real-world applications.

“Manufacturing is key to the prosperity of our country, with aerospace and defense manufacturing underpinning the security of the nation,” said AeroDef panelist Dean Bartles, executive director of the Digital Manufacturing and Design Innovation Institute. “The caliber of experts, technical sessions, and show floor representation assembled by SME at AeroDef offers the industry a service and return that cannot be found anywhere else.”

Industry leaders from Northrop Grumman Aerospace Systems, The Boeing Company, Bell Helicopter, Lockheed Martin Aeronautics and NASA help develop the content and features of the event as part of the executive committee.

“SME believes that the aerospace and defense market is essential, which is why we bring together the experts in the field, to serve that community,” said Dave Morton, event manager of AeroDef for SME. “From high level strategic direction in our keynotes and panels, to hands-on practical applications on the show floor, we strive to provide a forum for gaining knowledge and experiencing the latest advancements in the industry.”
