Supported by Royal Thai Army 3rd Regiment SOU King’s Guard
13-16 December 2022
NCT PRO Outline
NCT PRO Challenge Asia is the result of three years of development of a training concept for Southeast Asia. The original multi-country event changed due to COVID restrictions to a single one-week training event which was adapted to a full two-week training event with RTA SOU and international participants.
The event is split in two separate training weeks: one week is a dedicated SOF training (no sponsors) at the SOU Training Center in Lop Buri followed by a week training of SOF units with enabling teams from Royal Thai Army and international partners.
The second week is organized around scenarios with multiple missions in each scenario. This would work like the following example: a VIP protection mission turns into a CBRN incident when the principal is attacked with an unknown substance and the operators need to safeguard their principal, use basic CBRN decontamination and other counter measures and exfiltrate the area. The follow up mission is the CBRN unit responsible for sampling and the forensic investigation.
NCT PRO Challenge is a public-private cooperation initiative and industry is invited to provide new technology to try, test and evaluate during the trainings. However, the training missions and training the teams is the primary objective of NCT PRO Challenge.
Intelligence has led to a suspected clandestine lab hidden in the basement of a local Bangkok hotel.
- Mission 1: Recon/intel gathering (session combined with mission 2)
- Mission 2: Laboratory raid (session combined with mission 1)
- Mission 3: Sampling and Forensic investigation at the lab (1 session)
A VIP is escorted by special forces from a 5 star hotel to a meeting at State Department. During the mission, the VIP is attacked with a chemical substance.
- Mission 1: VIP protection detail
- Mission 2: Sampling and forensics investigation
After receiving an anonymous tip, police has responded to a suspected HAZMAT incident in drugs user hotel room.
During a VIP escort mission, a SOU unit identified a suspected package close to the entrance of the hotel. They exfiltrated the area and the VIP was not close to the suspected package. Your unit has been called to investigate the package.
After a call from the security guard at a local Bangkok hotel, EOD is called to investigate a possible VB-IED in a parked car in an underground parking garage.
A possible UXO is found in an underground storage locker
Area of operations
