For the past 35 years, much of Ritter’s work has reportedly been in adhesives applications development. He also led technical programs with the U.S. Department of Defense involving all four services and the U.S. Coast Guard. In 2004, he was co-recipient of a U.S. Navy ManTech achievement award for work on bonded marine structures in support of the Zumwalt-class destroyer.
