Zafar satellite to launch into space today

Tehran (ISNA) – The Iranian-made Zafar Satellite is scheduled to launch into space on Sunday.

In a symbolic gesture, the satellite will transmit the image of the martyred Iranian commander, Lieutenant General Soleimani at the start of its mission.

The satellite has been stationed at Semnan’s Imam Khomeini Space Center and will be sent into orbit at an altitude of 530 kilometers by Simorgh launcher later today.

The voice records of people will also be transmitted by the satellite, once it is put in the orbit.

Zafar is a 90-kilogram remote-sensing satellite equipped with color cameras and can be used for surveying oil reserves, mines, jungles and natural disasters. It will offer images of 22.5-meter resolutions.
