Nobles, LS, is president of Nobles Consulting Group Inc., which he founded in
1980. He has been involved with writing the national standards for terrestrial
scanning and served as a speaker at the industry’s leading users group
meetings. In addition to overseeing NCG’s five offices, he is frequently called
to be an expert witness in legal proceedings and conducts seminars and training
for professional associations.
