Musudan-ri/Musudan-ni Missile Test Facility
Digital Globe Imagery 02 April 2009
New imagery of the Musudan-ri launch taken on 2 April 2009 and released by DigitalGlobe showed the movable service levels obscuring the launch vehicle. The enclosure around the launch vehicle probably provided an air condition clean environment for the payload, which US defense officials stated was probably a communications satellite.
The imagery was taken by the WorldView-1 satellite, which was capable of half-meter resolution pan-chromatic (black and white) imagery.
