Iran has successfully launched the Pars-I Remote Sensing Satellite into a 500 km orbit using a Russian Soyuz rocket from the Vostochny space base. This satellite, equipped with three cameras, is part of Iran’s efforts to enhance its remote sensing capabilities and scan the country’s topography. In addition to Pars-I, Iran has been advancing its space program with the construction of Pars 2 and Pars 3 satellites, aiming to launch several satellites into low Earth orbits (LEOs) in the coming months. Despite facing international sanctions and previous launch failures, Iran’s space endeavors, including the successful launch of other satellites like Soraya, Mehda, Kayhan 2, and Hatef 1, signify its commitment to developing a robust civilian space program​​​​.
