Iran to put domestic satellites into GEO in next 10 years: Minister

Tehran, IRNA – The Iranian telecoms ministry has targeted the launch of home-grown satellites into Geostationary Orbit (GEO) during the next 10 years.

Issa Zarepour, the minister of telecoms, informed IRNA of the news on Sunday.

The national satellites will be positioned in the GEO at an altitude of 36,000 kilometers by Iranian-developed satellite carriers, Zarepour added to his remarks.

He went on to say that Iran has conducted 11 launches, encompassing research, orbital, suborbital, and operational missions, during the past two years and could place the satellites successfully in orbit.

Furthermore, Iran possesses the capability to deploy satellites into the Low Earth Orbit (LEO), the minister underlined, adding that the country is actively pursuing this goal, particularly with regards to the heavy and semi-heavy satellites.

After the current Iranian government took office in August 2021, it resumed discussions on space-related matters after a 10-year hiatus.
