RESTRICTIONS: Broadcast: NO USE JAPAN, NO USE TAIWAN Digital: NO USE JAPAN, NO USE TAIWAN NBC reports that researchers from a Washington based think-tank have discovered a secret missile base in North Korea — one of more than a dozen undisclosed sites.

North Korea's Sino-ri Missile Base is a seven square mile complex located 132 miles north of the DMZ.

According to a report by the Center for Strategic and International Studies, the base has played a key role in developing ballistic missiles capable of reaching South Korea, Japan, and Guam.

Sino-ri is one of about 20 undisclosed sites used to develop the country's ballistic missile program.

It houses a regiment sized unit equipped with Nodong-1 medium range ballistic missiles.

Satellite photos from December 2018 identifies entrances to an underground bunker or facility, hardened shelters, a headquarters area, and a communication facility among others.

The base is supported by two nearby facilities.

Sobaek-su Academy is a ballistic missile school for Strategic Rocket Forces personnel that also conducts research on "ballistic missile design and operation." The Myodu-san training area is believed to be the primary field training facility for both the missile base and the academy.

CSIS previously identified 13 of the 20 undeclared missile operating sites last November.

One site, the Sakkanmol missile base, reportedly had barracks and underground facilities to house transporter-erector-launches or mobile-erector-launchers.
