Iran’s minister of communication and information technology has unveiled plans for the launch of five new homegrown satellites by the end of the current Iranian year.
The military satellite Noor, sent into orbit by Iran's Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC), has taken clear mosaic images of Al-Udeid Air Base, the forward headquarters of the US military’s Central Command in Qatar.
An Iranian IRGC commander says the country plans to increase the orbital altitude of its military satellite to reach a geosynchronous equatorial orbit of 36,000 kilometres in the coming years.
Leader of Iran’s Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyyed Ali Khamenei says this year’s target of a surge in domestic production would be totally achievable when the country has managed to launch a homegrown satellite into space.
The Iranian president has praised the successful launch into orbit of the country’s first defence satellite as an invaluable national achievement.
The spokesperson for the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Islamic Republic of Iran has rejected the stances adopted by France and the UK on the launch of Iranian homegrown Noor satellite as a result of double standards and accepting the US bullying policies.
The commander of the IRGC aerospace force says that the Islamic Republic carries out its space work without attracting much attention because the enemy seeks to monitor it.
Secretary of Iran’s Supreme National Security Council says sanctions, threats and political enticement cannot slow down the Islamic Republic's move to pursue its national interests and legal rights.
An Iranian commander says the military satellite launched by the IRGC into orbit on Wednesday is to carry out reconnaissance and strategic support missions.
