The Gambit (KH7 and KH8) and Hexagon (KH9) Photo Reconnaissance Satellites provided the U.S. with close in surveillance, target acquisition, enhanced surveillance, and broad-area search and mapping capabilities from mid-1963 to early 1986, with Gambit 1 (KH7) providing photo reconnaissance capabilities from July 1963 to June 1967. Gambit 3 (KH8) followed and provided enhanced photo reconnaissance capabilities from July 1966 to April 1984.  The final film system KH9 (Hexagon) provided broad area search and mapping capabilities from June 1971 to April 1986.  The Gambit 1 program launched 38 mission satellites between 1963 and 1967.  The Gambit 3 program launched 54 mission satellites between 1966 and 1984.  Hexagon, the largest of these photo reconnaissance satellites launched 20 mission satellites between 1971 and 1986.  I was privileged to be an invited guest to the unveiling of the Gambit and Hexagon photo reconnaissance satellites at the National Museum of the Air Force on January 26, 2012.  I was also an invited guest at the declassification ceremony at the 50th Anniversary of the National Reconnaissance Office at the UdvarHazy National Air and Space Museum.  It was an honor and privilege to be a participant in these ceremonies, but more importantly to be a member of the organizations that designed, acquired, deployed and operated these marvelous systems.

I remember seeing this on the Discovery Channel documentary on the fly off between the two...

It hasn't gotten any better looking, has it?  Shocked
