  1. http://www.cia.gov/cia/information/artifacts/caltrop.jpg'>

    Caltrops were used extensively for operations during the early days of the Office of Strategic Services (OSS), the predecessor of the CIA. A scaled-down version of caltrops used to stop horses during medieval times, this device was also effective in harassing modern-day enemies. When scattered on roads and runways, the non-reflective caltrops would always land with one of the four spikes in an upright position, disrupting vehicular movement. This particular spike is hollow and can puncture a self-sealing rubber tire.


    The Eastman Kodak Company developed and manufactured this camera for use by the Office of Strategic Services. It was made in the shape of a matchbox and could be camouflaged by adding a matchbox label appropriate for the country in which it was to be used. The camera, which uses 16mm film, was designed to be operated with a minimum of user-adjustable settings. It was deployed “behind the lines” by resistance personnel in World War II for target recording and propaganda photography. It featured rugged construction and controls which could be operated by “feel.”


    When the Berlin Wall was erected, passing documents between agents in Eastern Europe and the West became nearly impossible. The mail became the primary means of communication, and many agents relied on "microdots" to get messages through. Using a microdot camera -- itself small enough to be used undetected -- an agent could take photographs that could be reduced to a tiny dot. The pinhead-sized piece of film was then glued somewhere in a typewritten letter and sent through the mail undetected . The agent receiving the letter would retrieve the film and put it under a microscope to read the message. Microdot cameras were used primarily during the 1950s and early 1960s.


    [b]MINOX CAMERA[/b]
    This ultraminiature precision camera has been a favorite of spies around the world for many years. The camera was originally designed in 1934 and, by 1939, 17,000 had been manufactured worldwide. The Minox was reintroduced in 1958 with an ultralight plastic body. Because of its small size, it was easy to conceal and operate in one hand. It could take excellent photographs of documents at close range and was a natural for clandestine photography. Convicted spy John A. Walker, Jr., used a Minox supplied by the KGB to photograph sensitive National Security Agency codes for the Soviets.


    The "Belly Buster" drill was used during the late 1950s/early 1960s to drill holes into masonry for implanting audio devices. After assembly, the base of the drill was held firmly against the stomach while the handle was cranked manually. This kit came with several drill bits and accessories.


    This Cold War-era motion detector was designed to blend in with local terrain. It can detect movement of people, animals, or objects up to 300 meters. The device is powered by three mercury cells and has a built-in dipole antenna and built-in 150 MHz transmitter, which relays the device's findings through coded impulses.


    This hollow container, fashioned to look like an Eisenhower silver dollar, is still used today to hide and send messages or film without being detected. Because it resembles ordinary pocket change, it is virtually undetectable as a concealment device.


    During World War II, the Germans used the Enigma, an electromechanical cipher machine, to develop nearly unbreakable codes for sending messages. The Enigma's settings offered 150,000,000,000,000,000,000 possible solutions, yet the Allies were eventually able to crack its code.

    that shit is awesome...
    what would really be awesome
    is having the clearance to know what
    they've got goin' on in the current age
    of avant garde technological funk.
    if you think about say, the sr-71,
    that was developed probly in the late
    40's, 50's and unveiled in the 60's...
    if they were working on that in the
    freakin' '40's....imagine...
