TEHRAN – Three Iranian domestically-made satellites will launch into space during the current Iranian calendar year (to be ended on March 20, 2019), the Iranian Space Agency (ISA) Director Morteza Barari said on Monday.

The Dousti (frienship) satellite of the Sharif University of Technology, Payam of the Amirkabir University and the Nahid-1 are completed and the three satellites are ready to be launched into space.

The development of space infrastructure in the field of telecommunication and remote sensing is our first priority, he said.


The ISA is following licenses for launching the satellites in coming three months, he explained.


There is no limitation for satellite launch in Iran, he said.


Dousti and Nahid-1 will be placed into the orbit at 500 kilometers above the earth’s surface while Payam will be placed into the orbit at 500 kilometers above the earth’s surface, he announced in early October.

Hard to believe how much is up there in space and things don't run into each other and the electronic signals from each don't interfere and block each other.

I'm more worried about upsetting my sharp shooter wife than I am about getting hit by space junk , LOL. I do believe the next big war will start with a Pearl Harbor type sneak attack on satellites. Almost all data needed for military operations such as GPS etc. are now based in space. All the US spy bases on land like where I worked have been closed.

Those numerous satellites are not ours!! Dusti (friendship) is just the second satellite that Iranian scientists are going to send in the space in March, 2019. It is a scientific satellite that collects geophysics and natural information of various areas of Iran. Its mission is just for two or three years after is situated in the orbit. In addition to other components it is equipped with for special cameras that one works in the visible spectrum and three others are thermal, infrared, X ray and Violet ray. It also supervises the changes of the lakes in Iran and also Persian Golf. Of course there is another more developed Iranian Satellite under study to be made in the near future it is not obvious what it will be.

However, scientific space activities can be an advantage for all humans in the earth.
