Defence against unconventional threats transcends boundaries. Even in the current enhanced security landscape, there are still numerous gaps to be plugged. Thus, the Joint 6th SISPAT and 2nd ICOC will continue to explore beyond Chemical and Biological Threats to encompass topics in research and development against Radiological, Nuclear and Explosives threats as well as trans-national public health issues. The theme for the Joint 6th SISPAT and 2nd ICOC â€“ â€œCountering the Evolution of Threats through Strengthening Ops-Tech Convergenceâ€ - seeks to promote a closer exchange of ideas and requirements to spawn new innovative solutions by scientists to counteract the evolving threats.
The Joint 6th SISPAT and 2nd ICOC aims to establish itself as a truly integrated Operations-Technical (Ops-Tech) Forum to foster closer interaction between scientists and operations managers (military and public health) for better translation of scientific knowledge to serve operational needs and for developing a better understanding of the unique and challenging operations requirements for protection against unconventional threats. The Joint 6th SISPAT and 2nd ICOC brings together scientists, military, medical and response personnel from the Asia-Pacific region and around the world to exchange knowledge and experiences on operational issues concerning unconventional chemical, biological, radiological, nuclear and explosives (CBRNE) threats.
