This 60-page report provides a comprehensive assessment of the North Korean nuclear weapons program since the collapse of the Agreed Nuclear Framework in 2002. Since 2004, a delegation from Stanford University has made annual visits to the Yongbyon facility in North Korea (DPRK). The delegation includes Siegfried Hecker, who has made repeated visits to North Korea and is one of four authors for the report. The report describes the production of plutonium at Yongbyon and the construction of additional reactors at that and other sites. The 2010 visit by the delegation revealed a facility containing 2,000 centrifuges for enriching uranium at Yongbyon. The delegates also discovered the construction of an experimental light water reactor and facilities for fabricating fuel for the reactors. The report projects the amount of plutonium, uranium, and tritium that North Korea will produce. A timeline and numerous tables of data augment the contents.
