The plans which have been approved at the 22nd meeting of the Supreme Council for Science, Research and Technology include indigenization and development of subsurface technologies,

1.acquisition of the technology to design, build and test cold-start space carrier-engine
2.acquisition of the technology to design and launch a national cyber defense center
3.a comprehensive plan to develop the needed technologies to equip and update the radar systems of Iran's air defense system
4.plan to develop the country's encoding science and technology
5.and a plan to develop technologies to build 100- to 150-seat passenger planes

All executive bodies and training and research institutes are required to help with the implementation of the plans and the country's Planning and Budget Organization has been tasked with budgeting the projects.

Iran announced in 2013 that it aimed to fly its first Antonov-158 jointly built with the Ukrainian company.

The new air vehicle with a seating capacity of 100 passengers is the next generation of Iran-140 airplane.

After purchasing the production license for the Antonov-140 from Ukraine in 2000, Iran built its first Iran-140 passenger plane in 2003.

The first IRAN-140 aircraft was introduced by Iran in 2003. Five domestically-manufactured IRAN-140 planes were completed in October 2008 to increase the country's transportation capacity and upgrade the Iranian passenger fleet.
The IRAN-140 is a double-engine turboprop aircraft which can fly almost 1,865 miles before re-fuelling and its passenger model seats 52 people.

100- to 150-seat passenger planes means no Sukhoi 100 Superjet ?!

Palestine Gaza resistance retaliatory Badr_3 missile 250KG warhead range 40 KM

he al-Quds Brigades, the armed wing of the Palestinian Islamic Jihad movement, has unveiled its latest domestic missile by firing it at targets in the Israeli occupied territories.
The resistance group released a video on Sunday which showcased the new missile, dubbed Badr 3, before cutting to footage of it being launched at positions in the city of Ashkelon, which is located 50 kilometers (31 miles) south of Tel Aviv.
The missile carried a 250-kilogram (551 lb) warhead, a major leap from its predecessor which had a much smaller 40-kilogram warhead.
The video shows at least four Badr 3 missiles roaring into the dark of the night on May 4 and 5. Ashkelon is 13 kilometers north of the fence between the Gaza Strip and Israel.
The al-Quds Brigades warned Israel that “what is coming next will be even greater.”

Qatari Foreign Minister Mohammed bin Abdulrahman Al Thani sent a message to his Iranian counterpart, Mohammed Javad Zarif, on Wednesday regarding Tehran-Doha ties and ways of improving relations. 
The message was delivered by Fahad Ahmed Al-Hamar, charge d'affaires of Qatar's Embassy in Tehran, to Alireza Enayati, director general for Persian Gulf affairs at Iran’s Foreign Ministry, ISNA reported.  
Qatar is among friendly Persian Gulf Arab nations. Emir Sheikh Tamim bin Hamad Al Thani told President Hassan Rouhani in a phone conversation on Monday that Doha is ready to develop wide-ranging relations with Tehran and called for the implementation of previous agreements reached between the two countries.
Iran has also stood by Doha and provided diplomatic and economic support during its diplomatic crisis when Saudi Arabia and its Persian Gulf allies blockaded Qatar politically and economically in 2017.

US B-52 bombers land in Qatar over unspecified Iran threat
DUBAI, United Arab Emirates – The B-52 bombers ordered by the White House to deploy to the Persian Gulf to counter unspecified threats from Iran are beginning to arrive at a major American air base in Qatar.

Images released by the U.S. Air Force show B-52H Stratofortress bombers arriving at Al Udeid Air Base in Qatar on Thursday. Others landed at an undisclosed location Wednesday.

The Air Force identified the aircraft as coming from the 20th Bomb Squadron of Barksdale Air Force Base in Louisiana.

On Sunday, the White House announced it would send the USS Abraham Lincoln aircraft carrier strike group and the bombers to counter Tehran.

On Wednesday, Iran announced it would begin backing away from its nuclear deal with world powers, a year after President Donald Trump pulled America from the accord

IMF May 11- Iran
As B-52 arrive, Iran's Revolutionary Guards rejects talks with US labeling US as 'unreliable',also they say 'US doesn't dare to attack'.
"No talks will be held with the Americans and the Americans will not dare take military action against us," Yadollah Javani, the IRGC's deputy head for political affairs, was quoted as saying by Tasnim news agency on Friday.
He added ""Our nation ... sees America as unreliable."

The dismissal came day after D.Trump refused to dismiss military confrontation with Iran and said "I would like to see they call me and negotiate new deal".

I'm not a military expert by the longest stretch of the imagination. Regardless, I'm captivated by Iran's patience and resilience in face of all of the ongoing sanctions while the country pursues expanding its domestic defense and aerospace industries.

It seems to me the next logical step for Iran to succeed in reaching full self-sufficiency and economic autarky would be to create its own secret "Shenzhen" within its underground complexes. With lithium, rare-earth metals and a wide arrange of mineral deposits stretching from Afghanistan to Tibet, I don't see why Iran cannot pursue a domestic electronics industry of computers, microprocessors, smartphones, AI and 3D printers to boost its economy alongside speed up military innovations.

Focusing more on synergy, novelty and creativity in creating more 'exotic' and 'mysterious' weaponry might be a better deterrence than openly playing a game of catch-up with renovating old fighter jets and the like.  If Iran can replicate US drones and manufacture guided smart bombs to go with them, why not take it a step further to create a swarm of Kamikaze drones armed with additional sonic technology to arouse fear and panic with pulsating disruptive frequencies prior to exploding upon a target?

Are there any reports of Iran exploring EMP technology? 

Heck, I can't help but wonder if simply adding something as cheap and accessible as fentanyl or carfentanyl to a long-range surface to surface missile warhead would work in inflicting damage even while intercepted in the air.

Just brainstorming here guys.

WASHINGTON -- US President Donald Trump on Wednesday formally notified US Congress his intent to designate Brazil as a Major Non-NATO Ally, according to the White House.

"I am making this designation in recognition of the Government of Brazil's recent commitments to increase defense cooperation with the United States, and in recognition of our own national interest in deepening our defense coordination with Brazil," Trump wrote in a letter to the Congress

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.
