The last station of the Khayyam satellite for remote sensing

Khiam is a measurement satellite designed to monitor the Earth’s surface for various applications including mapping and construction monitoring, land preparation, urban planning, agriculture, water resource management, crisis management and environmental monitoring. Earth orbit represents a major step in the development of Iran’s space program.

A contract to build and launch this high-resolution satellite was finally signed at the end of 2019 and the end of the 11th government following the JCPOA agreement and negotiations with the three technology-owning countries. Communication and information technology with Russian companies – they had good technical conditions – the signing, exchange and construction of this satellite lasted 4 years. It was completed in the early fifteenth century AD.

Through this outsourcing and launching of the Khiam Satellite Control Center and related centers within the country, the Iranian Space Organization and the Ministry of Defense began a domestic program to develop civilian satellites in the form of 6 satellites and 2 production chapters. Satellite classes on Simorgh and Dhul-Jana, as well as the IRGC’s peaceful defense program in the form of Noor-class satellites, have been followed up, and these two programs have also made significant progress.

Now that this important project has reached its last stop, its injection into orbit will be completed with complete success and I hope that Iran’s position in space technology will be further stabilized. I believe that with the beginning of receiving the above satellite data, we will witness the development of the application of space technology in various fields, and as a result, we will see the remarkable impact of space technology in the lives of our dear compatriots.
In conclusion, I would like to extend my sincere thanks and appreciation for the efforts of all the loved ones who participated in the above project from the beginning until now.

*Former head of the Iranian Space Organization
