NCS is a non-profit trade association that focuses on development and advancement of simulation and defense technologies for the military. Its goals include improving defense readiness, promoting space exploration and supporting education. “Working with the military, academia and our industry members makes this role the most gratifying position of my career,” Cheros says. He was appointed president and CEO last year.
