The Orlando-based National Center for Simulation (NCS) is focused on efforts to promote the Modeling, Simulation and Training (MS&T) Industry and support outreach, technology transfer, education, and business development opportunities for our government, industry, and academic partners. NCS serves as an important link between the military, other government at all levels, MS&T industry companies, and academia engaged in research, development, and application of simulation technology. NCS has 260 plus members worldwide with a large concentration in Central Florida. The innovative technology they produce are critical to our National Security and the war fighter. Although the Department of Defense (DoD) remains the largest customer, we see modeling and simulation technology expanding into other sectors to include: education, medical/health care, transportation, manufacturing, space, photonics, digital media, gamification, energy and entertainment.
