RAVENS CHALLENGE® ASEAN 2018

Raven Group International, LLC would like to thank everyone who contributed to Ravens Challenge® ASEAN 2018 in making it a safe and successful event. This year saw the program extend to four weeks of training, and incorporate new training to expand the CBRN threat as well as improve the exploitation and forensics capability. Underwater Post Blast Investigation, EXU Lab training, Sensitive Sight Exploitation Training, Joint Task Force Headquarters Operations, and so many more. This was all accomplished before the opening day of the exercise. Well done to all who worked tirelessly under difficult conditions to make this a reality.

To our vendor sponsors a special thank you for supporting this program. Your support and dedication provide the means by which hundreds of EOD techs and support staff have the opportunity to attend Ravens Challenge® each year. I would especially like to point out that each of the technology developers here not only have committed to directly supporting the safety and training of the Ravens Challenge® participants and wider EOD community, but are not afraid to let their equipment be exposed to hundreds of EOD techs under various challenging conditions.These companies stand by the EOD tech, as much as they stand by their products.Thank you.

Finally, but most importantly, we thank all of the EOD techs and their families that sacrifice so much to attend the 2018 Ravens Challenge® in the midst of a very heavy workload. The EOD community is one that continually rises to the challenge, and the Thai EOD community has managed to rise up and maintain Ravens Challenge® as the largest single EOD event in the world.
