Indeed, Pyongyang has been squeezed by layers of U.N. sanctions since 2006 targeting its once-lucrative arms trade and the flow of money that financed its weapons program.

"If you look at the previous launch and the payload it put into orbit ??? just the increase in weight is I think an important factor," Lieutenant-General David Mann told a seminar on Capitol Hill organized by the Hudson Institute think tank. "I don't think it's transmitting as we speak, but it does reflect a capability that North Korea is trying to leverage in terms of its missile technologies," he said.
