The CNS North Korea Missile Test Database

The James Martin Center for Nonproliferation Studies North Korea Missile Test Database is the first database to record flight tests of all missiles launched by North Korea capable of delivering a payload of at least 500 kilograms (1102.31 pounds) a distance of at least 300 kilometers (186.4 miles). The database captures advancements in North Korea's missile program by documenting all such tests since the first one occurred in April 1984, and will be routinely updated as events warrant.

The below map allows users to view North Korea’s missile tests over a period of time, and to select by missile type, missile family, and the tests' results. Users can also view additional infographics and read expert analysis of the database. The full CNS North Korea missile test dataset is available in Excel format (download), along with information concerning exactly how the tests are recorded and the information is categorized.
