ABOUT OUR EVENT
NCT eXplosive Asia Pacific will take place in Seoul, Republic of Korea, for the first time in four editions in the region and will be organized in official partnership with 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 fields of C-IED, EOD and Demining. Military, civil and industry stakeholders operating in the field of C-IED, EOD and demining from all over Asia, the USA and Europe will have the chance to gather and exchange best practices and newest solutions to counter the threats of IEDs and mines.
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 regional level, South East Asia is known to be one of the most heavily impacted areas with UXOs, posing numerous questions as to the removal of those explosive devices. NCT eXplosive Asia Pacific 2021 will provide the perfect platform to meet and discuss those issues.
