Peake, Studies 51.3 (2007), notes that this work deals with both the collection of monitoring data and verification issues involved in agreements on nuclear weapons. "The authors' narrative is not technical.... For those wishing to know how NTM [National Technical Means] contributed to the end of the Cold War and to learn about the demands placed on them by the war against terror," this "is an excellent place to start." For Poteat, Intelligencer 15.3 (Summer-Fall 2007), this book "is an excellent primer on U.S. reconnaissance systems,... and the many arms control treaties made possible -- and mutually acceptable -- by both the U.S. and Soviet Union."

Surveillant 1.6: The author "shows that intelligence gathering can be easily accomplished by Landsat-TM images and presents 17 photos showing the Kola peninsula -- a location holding many of the Soviet Union's nuclear warheads. Each map is analyzed and one easily follows the development and growth of, first, Schagui Air Base from 1972 to 1988, and then Gremikha Naval Base."
