Description : Samos E-5 (Satellite and Missile Observation System) was an attempt to create an high-resolution reconnaissance satellite with film return via reentry capsule. After the limitations of the original readout system became apparent, the focus shifted to recovery techniques, already pioneered by CORONA. In May 1960 USAF undersecretary Charyk ordered SAMOS to be reoriented to recovery techniques since it had become apparent that readout was in trouble.
At the time of recovery, the camera mirror was jettisoned, the Agena retrofired and spun up, and the capsule separated for recovery by air snatch over sea or land.

Cachet Lompoc, Californie. Série SAMOS axée sur la récupération des capsules contenant les données et photographies des zones Soviétiques surveillées.
