Operation Armchair - Son of The Thing, or... a small Dutch company, helped the CIA to eavesdrop on the Russians.

"A small company from Noordwijk, Dutch Radar Research Station, worked for the CIA for decades. It built sophisticated listening devices that the Americans used against the Soviet Union. I came across this story when a schoolmate gave me papers of his grandfather. Along with intelligence expert, Cees Wiebes, I reconstructed in eighteen months the never told key role that this Dutch company played during the Cold War." ~ Maurits Martijn
(A long, but interesting story.)
