Here's a good summary of the missiles launched up to March.

"According to these officials, the North had launched 72 rockets and missiles as of 23 March: 4 KN-09 rockets on 21 February; 4 Scud missiles on 27 February; 2 Scud C missiles on 3 March; 4 KN-09 and three 240 mm rockets on 4 March; 25 FROG-7 rockets on 16 March; and 30 FROG-7s on 23 March."

Article about the June 29th double missile launch from North Korea

Seems to be some doubt if it's a Hwasong-6 missile that they launched (nose cone)

North Korea’s Sohae Satellite Launching Station: Major Upgrade Program Completed; Facility Operational Again

It has been almost two years since North Korea launched the Unha-3 SLV intended to place a satellite in orbit. With the completion of construction activities at Sohae, particularly the modification of the gantry tower and launch pad, the North seems ready to resume activities at this site. If the political decision was made tomorrow—and of course no one knows whether it will or not—Pyongyang could conduct a new Unha launch by the end of the year.

I think it should be "2015 (TBD)" under 2015.   Or maybe 20??, "20?? (TBD)"!

Kim Jong-un vows to launch more satellites into space

http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/worldnews/asia/northkorea/11579921/Kim-Jong-un-vows-to-launch-more-satellites-into-space.html







Quote
Kim, during a visit to the North's newly-built satellite command centre, urged scientists to work harder to "further glorify the (North) as a space power," state-run KCNA said.

"The status of the (North) as a satellite producer-launcher remains unchanged though the hostile forces deny it and its space development can never be abandoned, no matter who may oppose," Kim was quoted as saying.

Here are three photos I've enhanced of the submarine in its port.

New Construction at the Sohae Satellite Launching Station

http://38north.org/2015/05/sohae052815/





Quote
Recent commercial satellite imagery shows new construction at the Sohae Satellite Launching Station (“Tongchang-ri”), specifically at the site used to launch the Unha space launch vehicle (SLV), most recently in 2012. While the upgrading of the gantry to support a space launch vehicle larger than the Unha was essentially completed by late 2014, Pyongyang has been further modifying the launch area to include a new support building at the east end of the pad as well as a platform that appears to move along rails from that building to the launch tower.

While the exact purpose of this building remains unclear, one possibility is that the North Koreans are building a complex similar to facilities observed in China, such as at the Jiuquan Launch Center, that include buildings where the launch vehicle is assembled, processed, and checked, then placed on a movable platform and rolled to the launch tower. As work moves to completion, a more definitive conclusion will be possible.[1][2]
