Summary
Abstract: The first generation of U.S. photo intelligence satellites collected more than 860,000 images of the Earth’s surface between 1960 and 1972. The classified military satellite systems code-named CORONA, ARGON, and LANYARD acquired photographic images from space and returned the film to Earth for processing and analysis.

The images were originally used for reconnaissance and to produce maps for U.S. ... View entire text

Purpose: The CORONA Image collection was driven, in part, by the need to confirm purported developments in then-Soviet strategic missile capabilities. The images also were used to produce maps and charts for the Department of Defense and for other Federal Government mapping programs. The CORONA system provided a cost effective method to map the earth from space with stereo-optical images. CORONA demonstrated that the ability to adapt rapidly to a changing world is critical to the success of U.S. intelligence. This need to adapt grows even more acute as the pace of technological advancement increases. Data provided by CORONA offers beneficial information for environmentalists, scientists, scholars, and historians.
