The report discusses aspects of integrated NBC decision support in the light of network centric approaches and, too, the development process. It describes how a test bed was being used during two demonstrations to interconnect a variety of sensors, models and simulators. Furthermore, the report illustrates how a test bed can be used to introduce new technologies and to illustrate benefits and constratints of new concepts. The approach is based on the assumption that prototypes and simulations are useful in the transformation process thus allowing users to get a tangible representation of the future. Such representations can demonstrate the usefulness and benefit of novel concepts as well as provide glimpses of new technology in a relevant context.
