The Importance of Hexagon Imagery

During the height of the cold war  one of the most important tools that provided the United States with information about the Soviet Union's military assets such as aircraft, naval crafts, missile bases, was the photographic imagery that the Hexagon spy in the sky satellite took. This photograph in 1974 is of George H.W. Bush, then Director of the CIA (seen on the left) explaining a photograph taken by the Hexagon cameras to then President Gerald Ford (seen on the right) in the oval office.
