This report, released by the NRO in May 2019, has been professionally converted for accurate flowing-text e-book format reproduction. Between 1965 and 1969, quietly and without fanfare, 17 non-NASA individuals were astronaut-trained in order to meet the reconnaissance needs of the United States. They came from across the military services.

A method and system is described for prescribing and constructing nontraditional camera placement trajectories (a series of specific waypoints) to more effectively capture digital image networks for the production of geometrically and geographically correct 3D point cloud models using Structure-from-Motion (SfM) techniques – the “work”. The constructed waypoints define gently curving flight paths
