Boeing is undoubtedly the biggest weapons manufacturer known to be scheduled to exhibit at "Secure Canada 2008."
Since 1997, Boeing has consistently ranked as the
second largest war industry in the world. This ranking is determined by
its revenues from military production. In 2007, Boeing's war-related revenues were
almost US$31 Billion.

Major Defense Acquisition Programs
The Pentagonís 2009 Budget Request Summary Justification provides a wishlist for $184 billion worth of "Major Weapons Systems." The "highest profile" of these programs, i.e., the most expensive ones are "designated as Major Defense Acquisition Programs (MDAP)."
Boeing is one of nine "Secure Canada 2008" exhibitors that are involved in one or more these top MDAPs. In fact, Boeing is the prime contractor, or a major player, in 16 of the Top 25 MDAPs. For details, see "The Role of 'Secure Canada 2008' Exhibitors in America's MDAPs."
