DOK-ING presented its products at this year’s special edition of the NCT PRO Challenge, in which teams from various European countries participated in dangerous scenarios from CBRNe, EOD and C-IED environments
Stubička Slatina, Croatia, October 2022 – The Croatian company DOK-ING, an international market leader in the development and production of robotic and autonomous systems and equipment for special purposes, participated in the international demonstrations of NCT PRO, which took place in Stubička Slatina from October 3 to 7, 2022. This tactical event was organized by the Dutch company IB Consultancy, in partnership with the Special Anti-Terrorist Unit Lučko, the Croatian national SOF unit and the ATLAS network of police special forces in Europe. During the 5-day training, teams from different parts of Europe followed a set of thirteen missions based on different scenarios involving terrorists, smuggling and other dangerous situations.
The venue for these demonstrations is a military facility previously used by the Croatian Armed Forces as well as many security sectors in Croatia for different types of training of Croatian Special Forces, firefighters and anti-terrorists units. A large wooded environment with adapted training rooms and facilities made the location suitable for the different types of scenarios demonstrated by the teams. The location allows for the use of SWAT operations using Simunition, (small) explosives and CB simulants.
“We are proud that it was DOK-ING’s MV-4 machine that served in the mission of removing a vehicle containing an explosive device. The machine was controlled by the operator from a safe distance via remote control, protecting human lives, which is in line with our motto „Don’t send a man to do a machine’s job“. 150 members of the special forces from Greece, Hungary, Slovenia, Latvia, and Croatia were shown how to use the best-selling robotic EOD system in the world in potentially life-threatening circumstances. The goal of the NCT PRO Challenge is hands-on team training for operators in which scenarios are carried out in practice under the guidance of experienced EOD, CBRNe and SOF experts.”, emphasizes Mislav Manda, Sales Director of DOK-ING.
