Pars-I Remote Sensing Satellite: In a military advancement, Iran launched a Pars-I Remote Sensing Satellite using a Russian Soyuz-2.1b rocket located in Russia’s Far Eastern Amur region bordering China. Iranian state media broadcasted the lift-off live nationwide. This 50-kg satellite, developed by the Iranian Space Agency (ISA), will be employed including agricultural monitoring, natural resource mapping, water management, and disaster response planning, according to officials.

The Pars 1 remote sensing and imaging satellite was launched on Thursday by a Russian Soyuz rocket from the Vostochny Cosmodrome and will scan Iran’s topography from an orbit of 310 miles (500km). Pars-I has expected an active lifetime of over a year, where they had specialist equipment like multispectral cameras that can capture high-resolution imagery with multiple sensor bands from orbit capturing electromagnetic radiation across multiple wavelength bands, providing data for various applications such as land cover analysis and environmental monitoring., nearly a week after the launch of a research satellite by its Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC). A near-Earth orbit typically ranges from 160 to 2,000 kilometres above the Earth’s surface. Satellites in LEO orbit the Earth relatively quickly, enabling frequent passes over different areas.
