Speaker is Bob Hull, Principal Engineer, Los Alamos Technical Associates, Inc.

In the late 1960s Bob Hull was an ELINT operations/analyst for the US Air Force Security Service in the Middle East, and at two different intel sites in Florida. At one of these sites, the USAF Special Communications Center (AFSCC), Detachment 5, Eglin AFB, FL, his unit on Santa Rosa Island ran missions against Soviet trawler spy ships just outside of the 3 nautical mile territorial waters. The incident a few weeks ago with a Russian spy ship off the coast of Hawaii and the current Chinese Balloon incident reminds us all that Cold War type spying is not a thing of the past. Bob Hull is going to give us an overview of US, Soviet/Russian, and Chinese spy ships - Cold War to Present. He will talk about spy ship technologies and notable incidents.
