Rasad satellite is the first Iranian imaging satellite that all stages of its design, construction, assembly, testing and preparation are conducted by domestic experts and within the country.
The topology and construction of ground stations of the Rasad satellite are designed to provide the most access to the satellite for receiving information and sending control commands. communicating with ground stations, taking pictures of land and sending images with telemetric information to ground stations are among the most important missions of this satellite.
There are Most of the main subsystems of a large satellite in Rasad including power management systems, solar panels, status control, acoustic cargo, GPS, data management and board commands, receiver and transmitter on board, transmitter, and temperature control.
The Rasad satellite weighs 15.3 kilograms and has been designed to orbit the Earth 15 times a day at a height of 260 kilometers.
This is the second satellite built in the Islamic Republic of Iran, which can put a 16 kilogram micro-satellite at a height of 260 kilometers from the ground.
The length of this satellite is 22 meters, its diameter is 1.25 and weighs 26 tons.
First engine operation and its separation, the second engine operation, the departure of the satellite from the intense atmosphere, reaching the desired speed, and satellite separation from the satellite carrier were the steps that were successfully carried out on this launch.
Four intercept stations, the telemetry station and the command station, the central station and the mobile station, carry out operations for tracking, guidance and control, and receiving information from the Safir satellite carrier, which they successfully carry out and continue their operations too.
