North Korea: A year in review

When US President Joe Biden took office in January 2021, few had foreseen the surprising ways in which North Korea would make headlines over the following months.

From the country’s ongoing COVID-19 border controls to new US sanctions against North Korean officials, Pyongyang’s ever-diversifying missile arsenal, an upsurge in cyberattacks and a severe food crisis, North Korea has again proved impossible to ignore.

Now, for the first time, Korea Risk Group provides a comprehensive and in-depth summary of everything that happened in 2021. Review the past to understand the future today:

The Aviation Tracker tracks commercial flights to, from and within North Korea.

The only tool in the world specific to North Korea to observe flights entering and leaving the DPRK.

Track commercial flights to, from and within North Korea.

The Aviation Tracker is designed to help you measure the North’s economic activities – especially the transportation of sanctioned materials – as well as understand changing tourism trends and visualize North Korea’s diplomatic relations.

Using radio technology, visual observations and other open sources, the NK Pro Aviation Tracker provides comprehensive information on aircraft movement to, from and within North Korea. Based on historical data dating back to 1970, our flight data comes from a unique combination of three sources aggregated in a way not used anywhere else.

Some examples of using the tracker:

  • Kim Jong Un’s bodyguards arrive in Hanoi aboard Air Koryo IL-76 cargo plane
  • In an unusual move, five Air Koryo planes head for Vladivostok on Monday
  • USAF cargo plane left Pyongyang on Saturday morning, purpose of flight unknown
  • Amid increased sanctions, Air Koryo flights down 22% in 2017: data
  • Orascom private jet pays for undeclared trip to North Korea

North Korea: a month in review

Take a step back and take a look at 2021 to help you understand what’s next with North Korea.

To stay ahead of the news cycle in 2021 and provide NK PRO members with the most relevant analysis on the region, Korea Risk Group continued to invest in its research team and tools.

With greater access to high-resolution satellite imagery, refined surveillance capabilities for suspicious vessel movements, and a growing pool of expert investigative journalists and analysts, we’ve worked hard to stay at the top of our game.

We have also continued to expand our coverage of North Korean cyber warfare – a very complex issue which we believe will benefit from the broad and deep expertise for which NK PRO is known.

Less than a month into 2022, it is clear that North Korea will continue to have a major impact on regional and global security, with its sixth missile test in less than four weeks as we wrap up this volume. .

As tensions mount, it’s good to take a step back and get a broader perspective on how the peninsula will evolve in the weeks and months ahead.

We hope that our first edition of North Korea: a year in review will help you do just that.
