Produced by the Society of Manufacturing Engineers (SME) and backed by leaders from the leading OEMs, AeroDef will showcase the latest advanced manufacturing processes. Attendees will see the entire manufacturing thread, from enabling technologies to the most advanced, integrated systems. Sessions will allow manufacturing professionals to learn how OEMs and suppliers are working together to advance productivity while reducing costs. AeroDef will, for the first time, bring together the entire aerospace and defense manufacturing world in one location.

Vander Wel is responsible for the leadership and strategy of Boeing’s technology portfolio in the Manufacturing Domain across the Boeing enterprise. Mike has more than 19 years of engineering, operations, and technology experience with The Boeing Company.

Linder oversees the congressionally mandated DoD program and manages the Defense-Wide Manufacturing Technology (DMS&T) Program Element. Former Director of the Navy’s Manufacturing Technology Program, Linder has more than 37 years service to the DoD.

Sutter works in the NASA Engineering Safety Center (NESC). Previously, Sutter led a team of more than 75 engineers, scientists from NASA, Air Force Research Labs, industry and universities to successfully produce and hot-fire test the first composite support structure for a hypersonic air breathing engine capable of traveling at speeds of Mach 8. Sutter also co-chairs a DoD/NASA workshop on high temperature polymers and their composites.
