Baltic 6eissa Mission Colonel Stesklay outlined details of mission CLYDE, scheduled to go into the Baltic during the period 8 to 11 Jmiw'ry. So emphasised that this varies from other approved Battle missions in that no flight plan will be filed; the dish off Soviet territory will be 30 nautical miles rather thane the customary 50 (the established limit being 20); and the aircraft will traverse the target area at an altitude of 1,000 feet. The Group approved the mission as presented. 2. ted , so.utt nonSatellites The Group discussed the resolution on satellites, approved by the united Nations in December. It was noted that the resolution itself does not require the revelation of sensitive information, but that the State Department has prepared certain ground rules covering the information that should be submitted. This is primarily an attempt to forestall the ON Secretariat's producing a requirement which would be much more, stringent. The consensus of the Group was that the purpose of satellites should not be given to the US, and that the best way to comply with the resolution would be simply to follow the Uttar of it, i.e., only to register each piece of hardware put into space. Mr. Johnson undertook to discuss this position further in the State Department and to talk to ?mbassador Stevenson within the limits of appropriate security clearaeses. It was agreed that this would be taken up again at nest week's Croup meting.
