The Defense Department wants to develop two "new sophisticated unmanned spy planes." With the Rapid Eye project, the goal "is to create an aircraft that can be stored on board a ballistic missile able to deliver it anywhere in the world within an hour. The Rapid Eye would travel inside the missile ... and be released over a designated spot.... The Vulture project ... seeks to deliver and maintain an aircraft that can remain above a surveillance target for at least five years." DARPA wants "to have demos of the technology for both aircraft within three years and working models ready to go within five years. [It] plans to spend $12 million developing the Rapid Eye and $7.9 million on the Vulture through the end of fiscal year 2009."

On 28 February 1998, Col. Ryszard Kuklinski was issued a new passport at the Polish Embassy in Washington, DC. He plans to return to Poland for a visit in late April. Kuklinski told reporters that he would like to return to his homeland "permanently" at a later date.

Constantinides: "Scotland headed the British prisoner-of-war interrogation system in World War II," but says little here about either interrogating methods for acquiring intelligence from prisoners of war or about the use of such intelligence. Half of this book is on his experience as head of the War Crimes Investigative Unit.

Scotton, Frank. Uphill Battle: Reflections on Viet Nam Counterinsurgency. Lubbock, TX: Texas Tech University Press, 2014.

According to Peake, Studies 59.1 (Mar. 2015), this work "presents a meticulously documented firsthand chronicle of Scotton's experiences as a USIS officer in Vietnam." He "describes his personal and operational contacts with key Americans in Vietnam. These include Daniel Ellsberg, Lucien Conein, John Paul Vann, Edward Lansdale, and Frank Snepp. Scotton's observations on their roles are worth attention.... Uphill Battle adds a perspective on the Vietnam War that armchair critics cannot hope to match."

NRO officials "last week officially notified Northrop Grumman and Lockheed Martin that they are terminating their contracts on the troubled Space Radar development project, effectively ending a program whose support on Capitol Hill had been dwindling amid cost concerns, schedule delays and technological problems."

In a 13 September 2007 memorandum, Deputy Defense Secretary Gordon England "rejected Air Force efforts to become the executive agent for all medium- and high-altitude unmanned aerial vehicles," that is, those that fly above 3,500 feet. The other services had "objected, stating that they feared giving up their buying power over their UAV programs would result in systems that do not meet their specific needs."
