Sheridan has 35 years of government and military experience in space-related acquisitions, operations and requirements development. While in government service, he managed a $10 billion annual budget in his dual role as Commander of the Space and Missile Systems Center and Air Force Program Executive Officer for Space. He oversaw the research, design, development, acquisition, launch and sustainment of the Air Force's space and launch systems.

As the Air Force Space Command's Director of Requirements, Sheridan led the team that developed requirements for all Air Force space and missile systems.
"Tom Sheridan has earned the respect of the satellite industry for his extensive work on a variety of high profile systems that support national security," said Chris Brown, executive vice president, Conventions and Business Operations at NAB. "We are fortunate to have him kick off this year's SATCON and share his experience and knowledge with attendees."
Sheridan retired from the U.S. Air Force as a Lieutenant General after earning the Distinguished Service Medal, the Defense Superior Service Medal and the Legion of Merit.
