Hello, I've been reading about SAC, 55th in particular, and am wondering if anyone could inform me about what a Geodectic Squadron was assigned to do? These squadrons werre around in the late 40s. Thanks

Geodesy is the study of the earth's gravitational field isn't it? So did the aircraft undertake measurements over designated areas and frequencies perhaps?

Geodetic - unless this is an abbreviation? I tried Google first up and yes it does return some hits but nothing definitive or enlightening. I'm wondering if its something to do with the DEW line being a part of SAC?
