    OT, but perhaps of interest to some readers:
    
    A slightly obscure but important element of the US space
    surveillance/intelligence system is the Defense Special Missile and
    Astronautics Center at NSA headquarters in Ft. Meade, Maryland. (The
    acronym, DEFSMAC, is universally pronounced "deaf-smack.") Some
    description of it, only moderately censored, is in a short declassified
    article at http://www.nsa.gov/public/pdf/desfmac.pdf
