Iran is set to launch satellite ‘Dousti’ into space in the coming weeks, the ICT minister told a conference in Tehran on occasion of National Space Technology Day.
“In the coming weeks, Dousti will be put into orbit,” Mohammad Javad Azari Jahromi said Sunday, his website reported.
Dousti (friendship in Persian) is a locally-made micro-class 52kg satellite that will orbit the Earth at altitudes between 250km and 310km. Jahromi said it has a spatial resolution of 10 meters.
Iran’s bid earlier this month to put into orbit the Payam1 satellite failed when the launching rocket did not reach adequate speed in the third stage.
