Iran Space Plan Set to Expand

Iran's space plan will witness a substantial growth in the near future, the Iranian Space Research Center, affiliated with the ICT Ministry, said.
The construction of a remote sensing and communications satellite will be completed next year. 
Hassan Haddadpour, the head of ISRC, said the country's first remote sensing satellite, dubbed Soha (meaning Star in Persian), and the communications satellite Nahid-2 (Nahid is Venus in Persian) are to be completed in the next fiscal that starts on March 21.
Soha would be able to detect objects with an image resolution of 15 million pixels and will be placed in an orbit of 36,000 km. It weighs about 150 kilograms.
Nahid-2 is the successor to Nahid-1, a communications satellite that is to help improve Iran’s ranking in space communications.
