    The commander of the Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC) says Iran will soon launch a satellite into the Geostationary Earth Orbit (GEO), a circular orbit more than 35,000 kilometers above the planet’s equator.


    Major General Mohammad Ali Jafari said on Sunday that the satellite would be carried on a missile which had been developed by the senior IRGC commander, Hassan Tehrani Moqaddam, before his martyrdom a year ago.

    The Iranian general added that numerous young scientists have joined the IRGC Self-Sufficiency Organization since Tehrani Moqaddam’s martyrdom to push ahead with his projects.

    Jafari stated that Iran is one of the few states capable of launching satellites into GEO, adding: “With this missile and on this level, I don’t think that except for two or three countries and Iran, any other country would be capable of sending satellites into GEO.”

    He emphasized that scientific progress in Iran will continue in all sectors.

    “Western governments and the United States are likely to feel threatened by Iran’s scientific progress. That’s natural, but we will do our job.”

    Iran launched its first indigenous satellite, Omid (Hope), in 2009. The country also sent its first biocapsule of living creatures into space in February 2010, using the indigenous Kavoshgar-3 (Explorer-3) carrier.

    Moreover, in June 2011, Iran put the 15.3-kilogram Rasad (Observation) orbiter in space. Rasad's mission was to take images of the Earth and transmit them along with telemetry information to the ground stations.

    Iran also launched Navid-e Elm-o Sanat (Harbinger of Science and Industry), another indigenous satellite, into orbit on February 3, 2012.

    The country is one of the 24 founding members of the UN Committee on the Peaceful Uses of Outer Space, which was set up in 1959.

    Tehran also plans to launch the country's first manned mission to space by 2019.

    Commander of IRGC says, the last project of Shahid Hasan Tehrani Moghadam, was a solid propellant satellite launcher vehicle for putting satellites on GEO orbit.
    He says God willing this project will come to fruition soon.

    سرلشکر جعفری در جمع خبرنگاران:
    جنگنده های سپاه به وظیفه خود مقابل پهپاد آمریکایی عمل کردند/پروژه جدید موشکی برای مدار ژئو
    خبرگزاری فارس: فرمانده کل سپاه گفت: جنگنده*های سپاه به وظیفه خود در مقابل پهپاد آمریکایی عمل کردند.

    به گزارش خبرنگار دفاعی خبرگزاری فارس، سردار محمدعلی جعفری فرمانده کل سپاه در حاشیه مراسم سالگرد شهید طهرانی مقدم در خصوص تعرض پهپاد آمریکایی به فضای کشورمان، گفت: یکی از پهپادهای دشمن به صورت اشتباه و یا عمدی وارد منطقه خلیج فارس و منطقه FIR که منطقه ممنوعه پروازی بود شد و سیستم*های پدافند جمهوری اسلامی و جنگنده*های سپاه که وظیفه مقابله را داشتند، به وظیفه خود عمل کردند.

    جعفری ادامه داد: اگر باز هم این اتفاق بیافتد چنین حرکتی از طرف ایران انجام می*شود.

    فرمانده کل سپاه در ادامه در خصوص آخرین پروژه شهید طهرانی مقدم گفت: این پروژه مربوط به پروژه موشکی پرتاب ماهواره با سوخت جامد در مدار ژئو است که مدار بسیار بالایی است و جمهوری اسلامی تاکنون پرتاب ماهواره*ای بالای 100 کیلوگرم در چنین مداری نداشته است.

    وی ادامه داد: انشاءالله در آینده نزدیک پروژه به نتیجه خواهد رسید و کسانی که از توقف پروژه*های شهید طهرانی مقدم صحبت می*کنند از فلسفه خون شهید مطلع نیستند.

    جعفری تاکید کرد:* تعدادی از متخصصان و دانشجویان راه این شهید را ادامه می*دهند ولی چون کار بسیار بزرگی است، زمان خاص خود را می*طلبد.

    فرمانده کل سپاه در پایان اظهار داشت:* ما باید پیشرفت*های علمی خود را داشته باشیم و در هر زمینه که می*توانیم جلو برویم و ممکن است با پیشرفت*های ما دشمن احساس تهدید و خطر کند که این طبیعی است.

    And this report says Hasan Tehrani Moghadam had tested one of the most powerful missiles of the world six month before his martyrdom.



    نوشته شهید«تهرانی*مقدم»بعد از تست یک موشک*
    پدر موشکی ایران بعد از تست یکی از قوی*ترین موشک*ها، که قدرت*بازدارندگی کشورمان را در دنیا ارتقا داد، در کنار محل آزمایش سجده شکر به جا آورد و بر صفحه سپید کاغذ نوشت: امروز یکبار دیگر فضل و جود الهی در این سرزمین تابید.

    به گزارش فارس سرلشکر پاسدار شهید «حسن طهرانی مقدم» که او را «پدر موشکی» کشورمان نامیدند، در 21 آبان 90 پس از سال*ها مجاهدت عاشقانه در راه اعتلای «کلمةالله» و عزت بخشیدن به نام و نشان اسلام عزیز در سرتاسر گیتی، به قافله شهدا پیوست.

    او در 14 اردیبهشت ماه 1390 یعنی 6 ماه پیش از شهادتش، پس از آزمایش موفقیت*آمیز یکی از قوی*ترین موشک*های جهان که قدرت بازدارندگی کشورمان را در دنیا ارتقا داد، در کنار محل آزمایش، سجده شکر به جای آورد که ساعت*ها طول کشید و در سجده با خدای خود راز و نیاز کرد. او سپس در دست نوشته*ایی کوتاه احساس درونی خویش را از این موهبت الهی این چنین روایت کرد:

    بسمه تعالی

    امروز یکبار دیگر فضل و جود الهی در این سرزمین تابید و بندگان سپاه خود را به نور الهی و هدایت روشن ساخت و نعمت خود را بر ما تمام گردانید و برای همیشه ما بندگان خود را شرمسار از حجت*های بی دریغ خود ساخته که ما لیاقت آن را نداشته و نداریم. و این نوشتار به عبارت ساده سپاس و حمد بی انتهای ما به آستان ربوبّیت بی*انتها در جود و سخا و مهربانی بی*پایان اوست. پیش بسوی گسترش دین الهی در تمامی کره زمین و ایجاد زمینه اطاعت مطلق او در سر تا سر زمین و ایجاد زمینه ظهور آخرین منجی و بسط و گسترش فرهنگ تشیع علوی در سرتاسر جهان.

    My friend, the most important part I wrote on the top of it in english. the rest are not very interesting.

    all we know, is this is a solid fuelled missile which can put sat into GEO orbit.
    of course you don't have to be a genius to realize this is the ICBM Iranian moghadam was working on.
    someone calculated this missile, will have a range of 11,000Km with 700kg warhead.
    but we need to wait and see.

    How come this fast? You did your first launch in 2009 in LEO (your Sputnik). Now a geo launch in 3 years?!!!
    11000 km ICBM?!!
    Even if you devote 10000 scientists and pour money in to it, you cannot skip the experiments.

    Recently, Afghanistan said Iran is firing missiles to our eastern states. Iran said they had been doing tests. Probably they have been constantly testing SLVs from their space center in Sistan province and the junks hit Afghanistan.
    Let's see! If they can launch in to GEO, they can have their own GPS by about 1 billion $.
