Reconnaissance \re-con-nais-sance\ n. A preliminary survey to gain information; for example: an exploratory military survey of enemy territory.

Reconnaissance is part of our name, but what is the National Reconnaissance Office (NRO)? If you have heard of satellites, you already know something about the NRO. If your parents have a global positioning system, you already use something we helped develop. If you have heard of the Cold War, you already know the reason we exist. Yet, there is still much more to learn about the NRO and your curiosity and need-to-know are important to join TEAM RECON.
