Content and Structure


Only a few official issues of CETS, particularly of Technical Planning Staff, are stored in the files of this Fonds, the smallest of the ESA sub-divisions, but the quantity of the material is sufficient for the reconstruction of the history of the agreement between ESRO and European governments regarding space telecommunications. The files concern the various steps approaching the agreement on telecommunications with unofficial minutes, reports, notes and relevant correspondence, plus comments on the final text.

System of Arrangement

Official papers are chronologically arranged.
