Iran Prepares New Satellite for Launch

TEHRAN (Tasnim) – Iran's Space Organization has taken delivery of a homegrown remote sensing satellite that is scheduled for blast-off after passing all tests.

The “Tolu’-3” (Sunrise-3) satellite, manufactured by Iran Electronics Industries, a subsidiary of the Iranian Defense Ministry, was delivered to the Space Organization on Saturday after passing the final tests.

The homegrown satellite weighs over 100 kilograms and offers a resolution of 5 meters in panchromatic mode and 10 meters in multispectral mode.

Tolu’-3 will be sent into Low Earth Orbit (LEO) to transmit images for application in various fields such as agriculture, water resources, and disaster management.
