NGA Historical Imagery Division

Aerial and satellite film missions from 1935 to 2004 can be digitized and provided electronically to user work stations. The primary usage of this imagery is photographic surveillance, analysis, and automated target detection. 

To locate available historical images you must use the Cedalion database on JWICS.

The Duplication Request Services (DRS) is the primary interface between NGA and Intelligence Community customers who require digital film products. To order image, input information from the Cedalion database into the DRS website.
