Martin C. Faga (born June 11, 1941)[2] was the tenth Director of the National Reconnaissance Office (DNRO).

Faga directed the declassification of the existence of the NRO following more than 30-years of secrecy. He revolutionized NRO support to the military, downgraded the classification of NRO products, and appointed a Deputy Director for Military Support. Faga initiated the transition from separate Central Intelligence Agency, Air Force, and Navy programs into functional directorates of signals, imagery, and communications.[3]
