The article provides information on the Generic Advanced Low-Cost Trans-European Network Over Satellite (GALENOS) project, a satellite network for telemedicine selected by the European Commission for financial aid. The chief aim of the project is to examine a satellite-based communication network that can support a wide range of services, without relying on application-specific technologies. The phases of the GALENOS project, and their objectives, are mentioned in this article.
