espi perspectives 71

27 February 2015. United States’ satellites that intercept communications have so far avoided the full weight of the media scrutiny that the Edward Snowden revelations have brought on other parts of the intelligence world. Issue 71 of the ESPI Perspectives explores the interesting yet poorly exposed activities that take place in this area. First, it outlines the scope and activities of the National Reconnaissance Office (NRO) that supplies the satellites. Subsequently the relationship between the NRO and the rest of the U.S. intelligence community is described.
