Dousti 1

Dousti 1 [Farsnews]

Dousti 1 (farsi for "friendship") was an iranian microsatellite developed at the Sharif University of Technology.

Dousti is a remote-sensing satellite, which was to orbit the Earth at an altitude of between 250 km and 310 km. It has a mass of 52 kg.

The satellite was apparently launched on a Safir-1B (or possibly an upgraded Safir-1C) rocket in February 2019, but did not reach orbit.
