Iran University of Science and Technology president Jabbar Ali Zakeri said that the Zafar satellite manufactured by the University of Science and Technology will be sent into orbit by this summer.

The development of the satellite has been completed and the final stages of testing and controls are underway, he added.

He mentioned that researchers at the satellite research center in Iran University of Science and Technology are working on satellite projects, adding: “The ‘Zafar’ is designed by experts at research center of university and it weighs 90 kilograms and is equipped with color cameras and can survey the oil reserves, mines, jungles, and natural disasters.”

Quote:Zafar satellite to run final tests by mid-Sept.

May 5, 2019

TEHRAN –Iran University of Science and Technology has manufactured Zafar satellite and will deliver it to the Iranian Space Agency for running final tests during the month of Shahrivar (August 22-September 22), the head of the university Jabar-Ali Zakeri announced, IRNA reported on Saturday.

Technical preliminaries for launching the satellite are also underway at the Iranian Space Agency, he said.

“We have already manufactured different parts and assembled them for initial testing and now we are at the final stage of testing,” he said.

As the agreement for manufacturing of the satellite was signed four years ago, the expenses are needed to be revised, he lamented.

The 90 kg satellite is equipped with four color cameras with 80 meter resolution and the equipment have average lifespan of 18 months, he explained.

Before launching the satellite into the main orbit, the satellite will be launched into 500-km orbit for testing, he explained.

His remarks came days after Head of the Iranian Space Agency (ISA) Morteza Barari announced that the country would send 3 new satellites to orbit by the end of this year.

The decision has been made to accomplish the tasks related by Nahid 1 telecommunication satellite and Zafar and Pars 1 sensing satellites to orbit them this year, Barari said on Sunday.

He added that Zafar and Pars 1 satellites enjoy the resolutions of 22.5m and 15m, respectively.

Hope for the first successful Simorgh launch... (and first successful launch of any satellite since 2015?!)

I saw a tweet today which shows a pic of a failure of the start. But me not sure if this pic is old one.

In a now typical pattern of the Iranian authorities, news released about a loosely related GEO remote sensing satellite project, indicates that the Safir-2-e-Zafar rocket might have entered the final preparation stage and that a launch is  to be expected in the coming couple of days if not hours!

If a launch was imminent satellite imagery would show increased activity at the launch site. I haven't seen anything about this yet, although Zafar was always scheduled to be launched in September this year, so hopefully that still happens.

Basically, you mean you are subscribing to some satellite imagery service and following the site on a daily basis?

@Galactic Penguin has considered last year subscribing to GeoEye-1 Satellite service, that is fitted with a Sensor of 0.46m, but hinted that no space launch would occur from North Korea, the plan was then postponed.
