No A>;ency 11,.2 overflights were flown during the month of June 1967. Mission C197C was alerted for 3 June Zulu date. This mission was subsequently cancelled due to weather deterioration in tar yet area. Mission C207C was alerted for 2f June Zulu date. This mission was cancelled for lack of M approval. Mission 217C wa for 25X1X7 10 June but was subsequently disa0proved :~v Since cancellat f on of C217C no missions have been alerted due to reluctance of _ to overfly the mainland durin cc the Mideast crisis. No definite date forecast for resumption of overf 1i ht approval t-v iWo 25X1X7 B. U-2 from Operation as redeployed to Edwards AFB, California on 9 June 1967. Na operational missions were flown in that theater due to lack of political approval. C. 'our missions were flown durin% the ninth. 25X1A2g on 2 June a systems checkout against a ;round radar environ meet was performed in Article 349. On 9 June a duplication of the " June .mission was performed with particular attention to the study of X -Band transponder effect on System 1213. 25X1A2g Both missions were successful. 25X1A5a2 Rx w are still in 25X1A5a2 LOS n- . es an pro?rossi nag satisfactorily t~, one of the oril;ii~al drivers, was re t ?red from the pro-,ram effective 30, June 1967.

Product provement A. On ? 28 June Systems 25 and 26 were test flown 25X1A6a against the ground radar signal environment. The purpose for the teats was to determine it these systems favorably compared with existing Systems 12B--1, 12C, Oscar Sierra MKIIA and Oscar Sierra MK III. The Systems 25/26 seemed to perform an expected and did exhibit some new and desirable operational features. A meaningful comparison made until all the flight test data and - 25X1A5a2 tests are thoroughly studied and analyzed. B. A modification on the MC recorder is being strongly considered to make it more compatible with a number of different ECM equipments which have a variety of output impedances. The change consists primarily of adding a record amp to each channel and removing the present IK ohs input impedance to the MC recorder. C. The updated System 6 (6A) is presently being mocked-up at LAC with TRW doing the development work. This change will be covered by a LAC S/B which includes the permanent installation of the MC recorder in all Articles and outfitting the vehicles with the new System 6A.
