Biography

Patrick H. Rayermann
Senior Director, Strategy and Development
Orbital Sciences Corporation

Pat Rayermann joined the Orbital Sciences Corporation in the Fall of 2011 following his retirement from the US Army. As a member of Orbital Sciences’ Strategy and Development group, Pat helps to identify strategic challenges which will face Orbital’s customers that can be met by solutions which build upon the synergistic strengths inherit across Orbital’s portfolio of capabilities and to orchestrate Orbital’s efforts to be ready with innovations, services and products to meet those challenges when they become reality while furthering Orbital’s strategic goals.

Pat was raised in Southern California where he had the opportunity to begin his professional life as an employee of the Jet Propulsion Laboratory. In 1981, he graduated from UCLA and its ROTC program with a bachelor’s degree in physics and a commission as a second lieutenant in the United States Army. He served in the Army for 30 years, first as a Signal Officer and then as a Space Operations Officer. His assignments included command, operations, logistics, cooperative international efforts, acquisition and policy development, to include serving as the second commander of the 1st Satellite Control Battalion and the G-3 or Chief Operations Officer of the Army’s Space and Missile Defense Command.

Immediately following 9/11 while assigned to the Defense Information Systems Agency (DISA), Pat successfully obtained sufficient funding from the Office of the Secretary of Defense to permit the rapid leasing of the large amounts of leased commercial SATCOM which were essential to the success of Operations Enduring Freedom and Iraqi Freedom.

Pat’s final military assignment provided him the opportunity to serve as the chief steward of Department of Defense’s (DoD’s) architecture for satellite communications and to serve as the Chief of Staff of the DoD Executive Agent for Space (EA4S) Staff. His military training includes the Signal Officer Basic and Advanced Courses, the Army's Combined Arms and Services Staff School, the Army Command and General Staff College and the Army War College.
