Description:

The latest electronic briefing book from the National Security Archive (NSA) features 23 declassified or unclassified documents related to the National Reconnaissance Office (NRO), established in 1961 but only acknowledged by the Department of Defense in 1992. The NRO was created to "manage the development and operation of the nation's reconnaissance satellite systems" in the wake of the capture of U2 pilot Gary Powers and problems in the fledgling CIA and Air Force satellite reconnaissance programs. This collection of annotated digitized documents traces the development of the NRO from its inception in 1961-2 to the first major outside review of the NRO conducted during the Clinton administration in 1996.
