Test Beds

The IALA guideline for test beds is here.

We invite all owners of test beds and Portrayel examples to join us in creating the portal. If you have a project you wish to add please contact us at dnc@dma.dk and we will setup your own page where you can add and manage your test bed. 
By collaborating we believe we can create the most extensive webpage on the subject of e-navigation.

Contact us at dnc@dma.dk with your test bed.
