INTRODUCTION - Today, imagery intelligence (IMINT) is highly developed and an integral part of the intelligence effort. However, the early beginnings gave little or no hint of the potential of IMINT. IAs have come a long way and their duties vary with their diverse job assignments. IAs must know the strategy and equipment of the enemy, solve problems, and reach a reliable judgment by using basic imagery analysis techniques. IMAGERY ANALYSIS BACKGROUND - During the early days of the Civil War several aeronauts with their gas-filled balloons were employed by the Union Army. Their mission was to hover above the Union lines and report Confederate activities. Professor Thaddeus Lowe devised a method of rigging a telegraph line to the balloon, enabling him to send a steady stream of intelligence back to earthbound associates. Professor Lowe's exposed position did offer an inviting target to the sharpshooting Confederate squirrel hunters turned soldier. The minnie balls and artillery shells may have been the deciding factor that caused the professor to advance the idea of taking pictures from a balloon which could be studied in an atmosphere free of such petty annoyances. The Army experimented with the idea of aerial photography, but that idea, as well as the Balloon Corps, was "left up in the air." It was not until World War I that aerial photography was adopted for widespread military use. Aircraft were first used militarily for visual reconnaissance during World War I.
