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The Zafar satellite is 90kg thus will be launched by the Simorgh SLV (good news, Safir is obsolete now).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