FREDERIC C. E. ODER

Elected in 1980

"For leadership in conceiving and developing civl and military satellites."

BY VANCE COFFMAN

"FREDERIC C.E. "FRITZ" ODER, colonel, United States Air Force (retired), and former vice president of Lockheed, died May 11, 2006, in Gloucester, Massachusetts, at the age of 86. He was elected to the National Academy of Engineering in 1980"

"Images collected by early satellites gave U.S. presidents photographic evidence of Soviet activities and enabled them to make decisions that had far-reaching implications for America and its allies. ...In 2000, for this and other contributions to national security—many of which remain classified— Fritz was named a pioneer in national reconnaissance and was inducted into the Air Force Space and Missile Pioneers Hall of Fame."
