Qased (Noor 1) [IRNA]
Qased has been described as a three stage launch vehicle using liquid- and solid-fueled stages. Stage 1 is liquid-fueled. The second stage is reportedly the Salman solid rocket motor. No details are so far known.
The first orbital flight took place in April 2020 from the Shahroud missile range, using a mobile transporter erector launcher (TEL) similar to the one used with the Emad SRBM. Possibly one or more suborbital testflights with only two active stages have taken place in 2019.
