Iran will soon send another domestic satellite into space, dubbed Nahid, Iranian Information and Communication Technology Minister Eisa Zarepour told Tasnim.
This satellite Nahid will be launched soon, and Iran is trying to launch it into space this year by the end of March 20, 2023, he said.
He also spoke about Iran's space cooperation with Russia, saying that the country's cooperation with Russia in the space sector is continuing.
Iran launched its Khayyam satellite into orbit in August. The satellite was sent into space from Moscow's Baikonur Cosmodrome in Kazakhstan using a Soyuz 2.1 B launch vehicle.
Iran said it will use Khayyam imagery to monitor Iran's borders and improve the country's ability to manage and plan for agriculture, natural resources, environmental issues, mining and natural disasters.
