KH-8/9 Gambit/Hexagon satellite declassification by NRO

The satellite was on display at the Air & Space museum today and numerous declassified documents have been posted at .

One of Hexagon histories mentions testing of color film capabilities using representative targets in the "southwest US" for ground truth determination. Area-51 would seem to be one possible location. Presumably objects they didn't want imaged would be placed indoors...
