Iran’s Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) has launched Iran’s first military satellite, Nur-1. This marked the beginning of a new chapter in Iran’s defense. This is the first time that a rocket, a three-stage rocket cassette or messenger, has been used to orbit the Nur-1.
Although Nur-1 is the first military satellite, Iran has so far launched five satellites. From the design to the construction of all the satellites that Iran has launched into space so far, all the work has been done in its own technology.
However, little information has been revealed about the features and functionality of ‘Nur-1’. Iran’s first military satellite has been described as versatile, with special use in the defense sector. It is becoming clear that IRGC has achieved technological maturity. By applying this technology one can formulate plans with confidence. May carry out reconnaissance battles from space and continued military surveillance. The IRGC can also gather the necessary information and data to keep Iran’s skies free and safe.
Shortly after launching Nur-1, IRGC Commander Major General Hussein Salami said that today Iran is watching the world from the sky and this proves that Iran is on its way to becoming a world power.
Although the activities of the satellite have not been highlighted, the launch of the satellite has opened the horizons of a huge success in the defense industry of Iran. This time, space has become a new area of expansion of Iran’s military dominance.
The Nur-1 was carried into orbit by a rocket cassette or messenger built on Iran’s own technology. The state-of-the-art three-stage rocket has helped Iran overcome technological challenges on its way to lower Earth orbit.
In the third stage, the three-stage rocket is powered by solid fuel, and by burning it, the rocket reaches the desired height. Experts believe that Iranian engineers have demonstrated their remarkable prowess in acquiring this complex technology in the face of tough Western sanctions. Their professional skills have stunned the western world.
The launch of Nur-1 proved that Iran had in fact defeated the US embargo, according to the Arabic website Ray Al-Yom. It also pointed out that the United States has failed to stop the dazzling progress of the IRGC, despite its portrayal of the IRGC as a terrorist group and the assassination of former Quds Force commander General Qasim Solaimani.
