Project Bluebird

 Initially, the program researched hypnosis and sleep induction for use in extracting information from foreign agents as well as safeguarding information from the enemy employing similar techniques. (MORI ID: 140401)

In the summer of 1951, BLUEBIRD is renamed ARTICHOKE (MORI ID: 149489) for security reasons as the old cryptonym was known to many contractors no longer associated with the program.
