NPR said the images of Sanumdong, one of the facilities Pyongyang has used to produce inter-continental ballistic missiles and space rockets, were taken days before US President Donald Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong-un met in Hanoi for their summit, which ended in failure.
US think tanks and experts floated the possibility of North Korea firing off a long-range missile or a satellite-carrying long-range rocket at either the repaired Dongchang-ri site or the Sanum-dong center.
New images reveal activity may have also resumed at a second site near Pyongyang, known as Sanumdong, where intercontinental ballistic missiles and satellite-launching rockets are assembled.
US President Donald Trump is open to additional talks with Pyongyang over denuclearisation, his national security adviser said on Thursday, despite reports that North Korea is reactivating parts of its missile programme. A few days later satellite imagery surfaced conveniently, showing unspecified "activity" at Sohae satellite launching site, which North Korea began to dismantle past year.
The Sohae site had been partially deconstructed after North Korean leader Kim Jong Un promised to dismantle it at his first summit with Trump in June in Singapore.
The official, who requested anonymity, recalled the President's statement that he would be "very, very disappointed" if reports of activity at the site were true.
She said the images are more likely connected to a satellite launch than any military missile activity.

South Korea's Defense Ministry said Thursday that it is carefully monitoring North Korean nuclear and missile facilities and that the US and South Korean militaries were closely coordinating intelligence over the developments at Tongchang-ri and the missile research center.
It shows Kim waving from a black limousine when it passed through a Hanoi street lined with residents waving North Korean and Vietnamese flags. Inside South Korea, opinions favoring Moon taking a leading role in global engagement with the North are mixed up with a desire for greater cooperation with the U.S. "In all cases, the expectation is a complete denuclearization of North Korea as a condition for all the other steps being - all the other steps being taken". "We'll see when that might be scheduled or how it might work out", Mr Bolton said in an interview with Fox News. "But we'll see what happens", he said. "That's our goal and that's how we see these negotiations picking up momentum".
A State Department official told the Wall Street Journal that the USA doesn't know why there were works at the site and noted that the situation is being monitored. The North Korean media and officials though celebrated his longest-ever foreign trip which he made in a train and viewed the summit as secondary.
Other experts, including Joel Wit at 38 North and Michael Elleman of the International Institute for Strategic Studies considered the conclusion speculative.
He said North Korea has never tested an ICBM at Sohae.
President Donald Trump earlier pressured Seoul to increase its share, triggering concerns in South Korea that he might withdraw some of the 28,500 USA troops here if Seoul refused to accept his demand.
