NCT Asia Pacific is coming to Seoul, Republic of Korea, for its third edition in the peninsula, organised in official partnership with the Korean Society of Chemical, Biological and Radiological Defense (KSCBRD) and the ASEAN Regional Mine Action Center (ARMAC). The event will kick start with a live capability demonstration led by the ROK Army CBRN Defense Command and will be followed by an international conference and industry exhibition in the field of CBRNe, C-IED, EOD and demining.
In these challenging times marked by the COVID-19 pandemic, it is essential to share experiences and best practices. The Republic of Korea has successfully led the fight against the virus and serves as an example for other nations in the containment of the virus. Being faced with the concrete threat of CBRNe weapons by its North Korean neighbor, the country is the regional leader in CBRNe defense.
Furthermore, the border between North and South Korea is one of the most heavily fortified zones in the world and buries close to a million landmines making it, together with other heavily mine contaminated regions in South East Asia, a challenge still to be solved. In addition to landmines, North Korea is thought to possess thousands of sea mines in his weapons arsenal, representing a threat to Naval Forces in the region.
At NCT Asia Pacific 2021 military, civil and industry stakeholders operating in the field of CBRNe, C-IED, EOD and demining from all over Asia, the USA and Europe will have the chance to gather in a three days event featuring a live capability demonstration, a conference stream and an industry exhibition showcasing the newest solutions to counter the threat of CBRNe, IEDs and mines.
