Zafar Satellite Launch Planned for September 2019 (Simorgh SLV)
The Zafar satellite is 90kg thus will be launched by the Simorgh SLV (good news, Safir is obsolete now). 

I think Zafar satellite was ready from 2011, but too many satellites and not enough launches = 8 year delay in launch! 

The resolution is reported at 80m, which is very poor. Especially when Iran has satellites with <10m resolution now and is aiming for 1-2m resolution in the next few years.

Regardless, this will be a good step and hopefully it will be the first successful launch of the Simorgh SLV.
