Biographical / Historical:
In early 1958, a few months after the Soviets launched the first Sputnik, President Eisenhower authorized a top-priority reconnaissance satellite project jointly managed by the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) and the US Air Force. It was to launch into orbit a camera-carrying spacecraft that would take photographs of the Soviet Union and return the film to Earth. The secret spy satellite was dubbed Corona by the CIA. To disguise its true purpose, it was given the cover name Discoverer and described as a scientific research program. From 1960 to 1972, more than 100 Corona missions took over 800,000 photographs. As cameras and imaging techniques improved, Corona and other high-resolution reconnaissance satellites provided increasingly detailed information to US intelligence analysts. Dozens of companies and many thousands of people labored in secret to develop and operate the technologies for Corona. One of the companies was ITEK, whose spaceborne panoramic camera design revolutionized photo reconnaissance, allowing the Corona program to be successful.

Extent:
0.79 Cubic feet (2 containers)
Type:
Collection descriptions
Archival materials
Panoramic photographs
Technical documents
Date:

Summary:
This collection consists of technical manuals and documents relating to the Apollo Panoramic Cmaera (APC).
Scope and Contents:
This collection consists of the following technical manuals and documents: Critical Design Review Light Sensor and AEC Modification Panoramic Camera for Apollo Scientific Instrument Module; Photographic Data Utilization Manual; "Panoramic Camera for Scientific Instrument Model Monthly Progress Reports," 1969-1971; Panoramic Camera for Apollo Scientific Instrument Module, 1970; V\H Problem Analysis - Apollo 15, Panoramic Camera, Experiment S-163, 1971, two revisions one September and one November 1971; Familiarization and Integration Manual for Prototype Panoramic Camera for Scientific Instrument Module, 1970; a folder of Itek Critical Design Review actions; and a Preliminary Work Breakdown Structure Chart.
Arrangement:
No arrangement.
Biographical / Historical:
The Apollo Panoramic Camera (APC) was mounted in the Scientific Instrumentation Module of Apollos 15, 16 and 17. Itek built the panoramic camera for NASA to be used in the scientific mapping done during the final three Apollo missions. The camera provided high resolution photography along orbital groundtracks. The camera, which could operate in stereo mode, was mounted on the service module and recorded images on a film cassette. The cassette was then retrieved by the Command Module Pilot during an extravehicular activity (EVA) during the trans-Earth portion of the mission. The camera is a direct technological descendent of the Itek camera used in the U-2 photo reconnaissance programs.
