At this point, IRGC needs to take over the program and militarize/classify it until a civilian government made of humans are elected.
Only announce launches after they occurred with little NOTAM notice and most importantly, completely take over the chain of production and vet out potential roaches from the current space program.

Did one of the two turbopumps fail? Or one of the four motors did a safety shut down? A software error that shut off the second stage?
No Saman thrid stage was present, they wanted to keep it simple.
Maybe the R-27 venier motor is simply not suited for that long vacuum operation, as it should be significantly longer than on the Safir. Did the extension nozzle skirt fail due to overheating? Because that can't be well simulated on earth.

According to Iran ’s official IRIB news agency, Mohammad Javad Azari-Jahromi, Iran ’s Minister of Information and Communications Technology, said: 'The Zafar (Victory in Persian) satellite will be launched from Semnan into orbit at a speed of 7.400 kilometers per second. '
The 113-kilogram Zafar satellite will be launched by the 'Simorgh' rocket into 530 kilometers Low Earth orbit. 'The main task will be to collect images. Iran needs these data to study earthquakes, respond to natural disasters and develop agriculture.'
A spokesman for the Ministry of Defense said that the satellite was launched at 19:15 and that about 90% of its orbital path was also completed. The satellite reached an altitude of 540 kilometers and a speed of 6'500 meters per second, but the satellite did not reach orbital insertion speed.
He added: The satellite was also in orbit for a few minutes, but the orbit was not complete. At the same time, signals were received and the ground station was taking action.
In January 2019, Iran announced that its satellite Payam, which collects environmental data from Iran, failed to enter orbit.

The satellite carrier’s engines were tested for 375 seconds in vacuum conditions,
it was the first time that the homegrown engines worked for such a period of time in vacuum.
