Nahid 1 [Farsnews]

Nahid 1 (Venus 1) is an Iranian low earth orbit communications microsatellite.

The Iranian Space Agency (ISA) has endorsed a contract with the Iranian Space Research Center to build Nahid 1.

Reportedly this satellite was to be launched in 2017, possibly on the new Simorgh launch vehicle. In August 2019 Iranian officials announced, that the Nahid satellite is undergoing preparations for launch within two weeks. On 29 August 2019, satellite images showed smoke billowing from the launch pad, indicating an on pad failure during launch preparations. Apparently the satellite was not yet on the rocket during the incident.

In November 2022 it was anounced that Navid is to be launched soon on the new Qaem-100 launch vehicle.
