Published Thursday, the report used satellite imagery from Planet Labs and high-resolution imagery from Digital Globe to analyze how much two particular sites have expanded in recent years.
The sites are the Yeongjeo-dong missile base and a separate, previously-undisclosed location near an area known as Hoejung-ni.
Images taken at Yeongjeo-dong show evidence of camouflaging, suggesting that they were taken during construction or right after, the report said.
The authors pointed out that the base was located along a narrow valley and that a headquarters was built at its mouth.
They also noted two “drive-through” shelters that had been covered with soil and that had trees planted atop them.
