The static test facility was newly identified on photography, and earlier cove ra e shows that it was completed sometime between 25X1 D The test building at Shen-yang is very similar in configuration to a Soviet test building at the Zagorsk Rocket Engine Test Facility Krasnozavodsk. Because the Zagorsk facility has been associated with liquid rocket systems in the past, it is probable that the Shen-yang facility is involved with liquid systems. There is no photographic evidence of solid rocket motor storage or handling facilities at Shen-yang. Certain features of the Shen-yang facility indicate that it probably tests small engines such as SA-2 sustainers. These features include the horizontal position of the test cells, their. relatively small size, the presence of more than one test position in a single building, and the closeness of the blast wall to the building (60 feet). Finally, the static test facility is only 15 nautical miles from the Shen-yang Airframe Plant where SA-2 shipping canisters are frequently seen on photography. Because of these canisters, this is the plant believed to be the Chinese producer of SA-2 missiles.

Control System Only CHINA Recent Road Construction in the Ussuri-Amur River Border Region Considerable road construction has occurred in the past 12 months in that portion of the Ussuri-Amur River border region of northeast China shown in Figure 2. This area was covered on clear, cloud-free KH-4 pho- tography in Several all weather road segments which were begun in have been completed and numerous existing roads have been improved by widening, filling-in low portions, and improving bridges and culverts. This system of new and improved roads directly connects several points along the remote border area with an existing all weather road system leading to the populated Chia-mu-ssu area farther to the west. No military activity has been noted in association with the expanding road net. Refugee reports have alleged that the Chinese began building a "national defense highway" in this border region sometime after the spring of II Of the seven border towns which this "national defense highway" will reportedly pass through, six are now served by a net of fair and all weather roads and the seventh remains isolated.

We can now confirm the linkage of the pipeline section running westward from Vinh with the north-south pipeline (see Figure 3). The pipe- line now extends for about 100 nautical miles (nm) within North Vietnam and enters Laos through the Mu Gia Pass. A 15 nm segment of pipeline has been confirmed in Laos, and field reports based on photography have reported additional pipeline alignment that would link all confirmed segments. Six POL storage areas in North Vietnam are now directly connected to the pipeline, as are two probable storage areas in Laos. The locations of 16 pump installations have also been identified along the pipeline in North Vietnam. For earlier analyses of this pipeline construction, see IAS Notes of 27 December 1968 and 31 January 1969. Handle Via Talent-KEYHOLE Approved For Release 2002/TU?7 SE?

Wed For Release 2002/01f P: 9kR6T79Uf759A0091000100664TS 18975/69 Control System Only Probable New Nuclear Energy Facilities Two new probable nuclear facilities have been identified on photography in Czechoslovakia. One is believed to be a nuclear reactor research facility and the other is a probable uranium ore concentration plant. The first facility is a probable zero-power reactor building at the Rez Institute of Nuclear Physics near Prague. It was first seen under construction on photography and appeared externally complete in A reactor of this type is normally used for training purposes and to determine reactor parameters. The Rez Institute also contains a VVR reactor and a 5-MeV cyclotron which were supplied by the Soviet Union. The second facility is identified on the photography as an ore process- ing plant near the town of Rozna, 23 nautical miles (nm) northwest of Brno. It is believed to be for uranium ore concentration because of its appearance and its location in an area where uranium mines are reportedly being developed to replace mines being closed in the Jachymov region. The Plant was first seen on photography in the late stages of construction in I land 25X1 D appeared operational on coverage. The Soviets have long exploited Czech uranium concentrates for their own use, and this is apparently the second modern plant built to increase the output of these concentrates. The other plant is located at Mydlovary, 9 nm northwest of Ceske Budejovice.
