APOLLO - A CATALYST FOR FULL TEXT DELIVERY IN EUROPE
The CEC having supported Euronet and the creation of data bases and thus contributed to the development of a European market for electronic references to documents, is now supporting the electronic delivery of full text documents, e.g. by co-funding 10 pilot experiments. As present telecommunication means are not suitable for electronic document delivery the CEC, together with ESA, EUTELSAT, CEPT and interested PTTs developed the APOLLO concept for electronic document delivery by satellite and recently agreed on an APOLLO draft system requirements specification. APOLLO services are expected to start in 1986.
