By welcoming the highest decision makers from the national CBRNe, C-IED, EOD Community, NCT USA will again provide a networking and knowledge exchange platform for local & federal first responders, as well as industry leaders in the fields of CBRNe, C-IED and EOD. Over the duration of three days, NCT USA will feature a Conference, Exhibition and the 6th edition of the NCT PRO Trainings. Based on the success of the previous editions, the NCT PRO Trainings will foster interoperability of responders and introduce them to the latest CBRNe, C-IED and EOD technologies. Collaboration between the public and the private sector as well as the use of the newest technologies are key factors capable of countering CBRNe threats. In the USA, as well as in many other countries, it is of key importance to adopt a multi-level and interdisciplinary approach in order to face the complexity of the challenges CBRNe threats can pose.

Join us next May in Edgewood (MD) for the 6th edition of NCT USA!
