1964: DEFSMAC Established.
To celebrate DEFSMAC’s 50th anniversary, the National Cryptologic Museum expanded its electronic intelligence and telemetry exhibit. The new “Telemetry Intelligence” exhibit explains the importance of gathering information about an adversary’s missile and space capabilities so that leaders can make informed decisions for defense policies.
