Iran to launch 2 homegrown Nahid satellites early in 2023

Tehran: Iran will put into orbit at least two domestically-produced satellites, Nahid-1 and Nahid-2, by the spring of 2023, Iranian Minister of Information and Communications Technology Issa Zarepour said on Sunday.

“By the end of this year [Iran celebrates new year on March 21] at least two satellites will be launched into space, there are also some other satellites on the way… Two satellites are being prepared [Nahid-1 and Nahid-2]. Hopefully, by the end of the year they will be launched into space,” Zarepour was quoted as saying by the Iranian news agency IRNA.
Both are homegrown satellites. Nahid-2 has telecommunications equipment as well as an engine for orbital maneuvers. Nahid-2 is considered an important advancement in Iran’s orbital spacecraft production. (image credits- Maxar Technologies via AP)
