New Database Documents All North Korean Missile Tests

A new database released today by the James Martin Center for Nonproliferation Studies (CNS) on NTI’s website documents all of North Korea’s missile test launches since the country’s first test in 1984. This first of its kind database is accompanied by an interactive map that displays the tests by location, missile type and family, and results over a period of time.  

In his analysis of the data, CNS research associate Shea Cotton, explains that trends and patterns in North Korea’s missile testing behavior since 2014 indicate the regime’s possible intention of deploying nuclear weapons to missile units throughout the country.

Media inquiries about the database or accompanying graphics can be directed to Jessica Varnum at jvarnum@miis.edu.
