Facilities

Below, you will find information on the nuclear, chemical, biological, and missile facilities of the countries profiled on the NTI website, including in most cases, the locations on an interactive Google map. To view facilities by country, visit the country profile. Since definitive information is often classified, the descriptions and mapped locations of these facilities are sometimes speculative, based on the most credible available open-source material. This material was prepared for the NTI site by the James Martin Center for Nonproliferation Studies.
