1. This memorand;mi is a partial response to your requirement dated 15 May
1963 requesting mensuration of buildings in air frame/engine research and devel-
opment facilities in the USSR.
25X1 D 2. (a) Mikoyan OKB-155 (Moscow). A line drawing delineating the major
buildings in this installation was prepared utilizing the most recent coverage
of the area Approximately 10-15 small buildings could not be
delineated due to the small scale of the photography. All measurements were
approximate due to the small scale and obliquity of the photography. The follow-
ing buildings were delineated (see figure 1): Items 11) one building, 400 by 100
feet; (2) two buildings, a- 225 by 80 feet, b- 130 by 80 feet; (3) one building,
a- 240 by 160 feet, b- 640 by 130 feet; (4) one building, 240 by 100 feet;
(5) one building, a- 570 by 360 feet, b- 220 ,by 90 feet; (6) one building, 510 by

feet; and (15) one building, 850 by 70 feet overall.
25X1D (b) Tsiam (Old Tsagi). A line drawing of this installation was prepared
utilizing photography. All buildings in the installation were shown. KEYHOLE
coverage the area was also examined. Due to the small scale and poor quality
of the KEYHOLE coverage its use was limited. Building 26 (figure 2) appeared for
25X1D the first time on Missio The following buildings were delineated
(see figure 2): Items (1 one building, a- 400 by 100 feet, b- 230 by 75 feet,
c- 245 by 120 feet, d- 400 by 55 feet, e- 60 by 110 feet, shaed section probable

25X1D (c) Moscow Aviation Institute. A line drawing of this installation
25X1D was pre red utilizing =photography and KEYHOLE Missions
Due to the small scale and obliquity of the
25X1D photography all measurements are approximate. Several small buildings in the
northern sector of the installation could not be delineated due to the poor
quality of the photography. The following buildings were delineated (see figure
3): Items (1) one building, 110 by 110 feet; (2) one building, 90 by 100 feet;
(3) one build:Lng, 75 by 65 feet; (4) one building, a- 450 by 95 feet, b- three
wings 220 by 90 feet; (5) one building,! 150 by 80 feet; (6) one building, a- 115
by 60 feet, b- 145 by 60 feet; (7) one building, 65 by 50 feet; (8) one building,
140 by 70 feet; (9) one building, 125 by 70 feet; (10) one building, a- 360 by
65 feet, b- two wings 75 by 60 feet; (11) one building, 120 by 90 feet; (12) one
