Keyhole Sat Programs:

KH8 & KH9 were film imagining.

KH11 was charge-coupled device (CCD) array technology, sent by RF transmitter.

This has been out in the open for a long time. “Deep Black” (published Dec. 1, 1988)

Not sure I still have my copy, but read it soon after it was published. Same with “The Puzzle Palace”. I loaned that to a RF tech friend of mine.

So _that’s_ what they really made there!

Just went by there this morning, the “no windows” makes sense now.

Perkin-Elmer was a BIG employer in these parts back in the late 50’s-early 60’s. But they’re gone today...
