Iran Nears Completion of Their Pars 1 Satellite

Iran’s Pars 1 satellite.

Iran Space Research Center (SRI) is to deliver a domestically designed and manufactured remote sensing satellite — Pars 1 — to the nation’s Communication and IT Ministry in December of 2019, the center’s head announced on August 18.

As Hossein Samimi told Mehr news agency, Pars 1 is passing the final steps in SRI. He added that the research center is planning to design and produce remote sensing satellite Pars 2 and in this regard will cooperate with Iranian universities and private companies. “Pars 2 is more developed than Pars 1 and comes with a higher resolution and better operation,” he said.

SRI has many different projects namely remote sensing satellites such as Saba, Pars 1 and 2 and telecommunications satellites such as Mesbah-2, Zohreh, Ghaem-1 and SRIsat. The center is focused on producing ‘Remote Sensing’ and ‘Communication Satellites’ based on Iran’s sixth, five-year development plan. 

It is intended to develop space technology by conducting research, plan making, localization, implementing and monitoring projects as well as recruiting and training professionals in different space-related areas.
