Le United States Army Signal Corps a pour fonction de développer, fournir et gérer le système d'information des armées. En matière de communication, il est initié en 1860, et officiellement formalisé le 3 mars 1863 pour la guerre de sécession. En fin du XIXème siècle, le Signal Corps étend ses domaines de transmission et d'information aux technologies modernes, comme la téléphonie, à la photographie de combat, etc... En 1907, s'y ajoute une section aéronautique.
Pendant la grande guerre, ce sont des opérateurs photos et des caméramans qui accompagnent dès 1917 les opérations américaines de l'A.E.F. (American Expeditionary Force) sur le territoire français.
