Iran launch three satellites by March 2015


Iran will launch Tadbir, Sharif, and Fajr ‪#‎satellites‬ into space by the end of the current Iranian year (which ends on March 20, 2021), Iran Space Agency director Hamid ‪#‎Fazeli‬ announced on Saturday

Fazeli said the Sharif satellite will be sent into space by the Sharif University of Technology.

He went on to say that the Iran Space Agency is manufacturing the Tadbir (Prudence) satellite in cooperation with the Iran University of Science and Technology (IUST).

He also said the Fajr satellite has been designed and manufactured through a joint cooperation between the agency and the Iran Electronics Industries, a center affiliated to the Defense Ministry.

On February 3, Iran unveiled the Tadbir (Prudence) and Persian Gulf satellites.

Iran launched its first satellite, called the Omid (Hope), in February 2009. The Rasad (Observation) satellite was also sent into orbit in June 2011.

In February 2012, Iran successfully put its third domestically manufactured satellite, named the Navid, into orbit and received the first image sent by it a few days later.
