Alpha In Depth report: Iran's missile industry: A baseline study

Alpha In Depth report: Iran's missile industry: A baseline study

Description

An in-depth report prepared by Project Alpha on  Iran's missile research, development and production industries.

The recently finalised negotiations on Iran’s nuclear programme leave Tehran’s missile-related activities a matter of substantial international concern. Under the terms of United Nations Security Council Resolution 2231, passed on 20 July 2015, international restrictions on Iran’s missile activities and procurement will remain in place for the next eight years. Various UN, European Union and United States sanctions on Iranian missile-related entities will also continue during this time, and most likely beyond.

In order to assist non-proliferation efforts regarding Iran's missile programme, Project Alpha has conducted an extensive study of Iran's missile research, development and production industries. The resulting 135-page Alpha In Depth report, Iran's missile industry, is based on a large body of open source information, including previously unexploited tender information, academic papers, and Farsi-language language material.

Iran's missile industry identifies and characterises:

• The main entities involved in Iran’s missile development and production programme, and their roles and responsibilities. This includes nearly 40 subsidiaries of Iran’s Aerospace Industries Organisation, the primary entity responsible for Iran's missile development; the Islamic Revolutionary Guards Corps; and civilian entities such as universities.

• Key facilities in Iran relevant to missile development and production, including research and development sites and manufacturing locations for sensitive dual-use technology (for example, carbon fibre).

• Pathways of Iran’s missile-related procurement efforts, including domestic and foreign channels.

The report is supplied with a Google Earth KMZ file that provides coordinates of more than 80 Iranian military-related and missile-related facilities, including several that Project Alpha has independently geolocated using open source fusion techniques.

Alpha In Depth report: North Korea's Proliferation and Illicit Procurement Apparatus

Alpha In Depth report: North Korea's Proliferation and Illicit Procurement Apparatus

Description

An in-depth report prepared by Project Alpha on the North Korean entities responsible for the country's proliferation, sanctions-busting and illicit procurement activities.

This 200+ page report, North Korea’s Proliferation and Illicit Procurement Apparatus, characterises in forensic detail the complex architecture that North Korea uses to evade sanctions. It is the first publicly-available study to describe in depth each DPRK entity known or strongly suspected to be involved in Pyongyang’s UN-prohibited weapons selling, luxury goods smuggling, and WMD-related procurement and proliferation activity.

The report is aimed at counter-proliferation professionals, policy agencies and enforcement authorities who are seeking unclassified, open source information and analysis that can help them better understand North Korea’s global sanctions-busting networks.

North Korea’s Proliferation and Illicit Procurement Apparatus contains:

• Detailed profiles of more than 50 key entities at the core of the DPRK’s prohibited activities – with summaries of their senior personnel; proliferation or procurement activities; civil interests in the North Korean economy; subsidiaries and affiliates; and shipping and financial interests.

• Analysis of North Korea’s export capabilities and procurement requirements for UN-prohibited goods (weapons, WMD-related technology and luxury items).

• A typology of the North Korean entities involved in illicit activity.

• Analysis of North Korea’s use of maritime and air transport methods, with detailed cases from the 1990s to the present.

• A tabular comparison of US, EU, Japanese and ROK sanctions designations of more than 250 North Korean entities, for quick comparison across sanctions regimes.

The report is fully referenced with more than 800 footnotes citing authoritative sources, including UN Security Council, European Council and United States sanctions, as well as UN Panel of Experts reporting, DPRK commercial information and other materials.
