This March 14 – 15 at the Fort Worth Convention Center in Fort Worth, TX, you’ll find Vanguard Products tending Booth #137 at Aerocon, one of the foremost aerospace and defense industry exhibition shows in North America. We’re looking forward to connecting with new clients, getting in touch with old friends, and discovering more about the latest trends in cutting-edge aerospace and military technology.


It’s an uncontestable fact that the aerospace and defense industries pave the way for future technological applications at large. Where would the commercial airline industry be without the development of long-range bombers during the Second World War? Where would GPS technology stand without the development of NAVSTAR satellites to detect incoming Soviet ICBMs? Where would the Internet itself be without the development of ARPA Net, the communication system built by NORAD in the 1960s that would allow for key military and governmental installations to communicate with each other effectively in the event of a nuclear exchange? When would the lowly steel barrel industry, the industry which today enables global trade from oil to foodstuffs, have gotten its start without the U.S. military requiring better containers to supply its forces in North Africa in World War Two?

The fact that Vanguard specializes (amongst other things) in EMI/RFI shielding gaskets and heat conducting elastomer puts us in a position to help supply some of the most advanced technologies coming down the pipeline this century. More so than ever, we anticipate the 21st century being a century that’s electrically-driven at exponentially higher levels than the 20th. The days of Thomas Alva Edison and his 100-watt light-bulbs have given way to satellite, robotic, and microchip technology that will develop American technology far beyond the reaches of our finest sci-fi writers.

The future is being written now at such events as Aerocon. We at Vanguard hope to see you there shortly.
