Speaker Biography

Mr. Douglas L. Loverro, a member of the Senior Executive Service, is the Deputy Assistant Secretary of Defense for Space Policy. In this role he is responsible for establishing policy and guidance to assure U.S. and allied warfighters the benefits of Space capabilities and to help guide the Department’s strategy for addressing space-related issues. He also leads Departmental activities in international space cooperation.

Mr. Loverro most recently served as the Executive Director for Air Force Space Command’s Space and Missile Systems Center where he also served as the Air Force’s Deputy Program Executive Officer (PEO) for Space. In that capacity, he was responsible to the commander and PEO for the development, deployment, and sustainment of all Department of Air Force space systems and was a key spokesman for addressing the growing importance of space systems and the steps needed to assure them for the future. He has been involved in the planning and acquisition of DoD and Space Intelligence systems for over twenty years, both in and out of uniform.

Mr. Loverro is credited with a wide-ranging list of accomplishments in aerospace development including the invention of the supersonic chemical oxygen-iodine laser, the initiation of the DoD's Global Broadcast Service, establishing the foundation for all Global Positioning System modernization, and leading the push for greater use of commercial manufacturing and capabilities for future DoD space and launch systems. He retired from active duty in February 2006 upon selection as a member of the Defense Intelligence Senior Executive Service. He assumed his current role in March 2013.

Mr. Loverro holds a BS in Chemistry from the United States Air Force academy, an MS in Physics from the University of New Mexico, an MS in Political Science from Auburn University, and an MBA from the University of West Florida.
