During a recent press conference the head of the Iranian Space Agency has provided an update on the status of five long-delayed Iranian satellites.
Only one of the satellites appears ready for launch, and is awaiting a rocket to put it in orbit. The satellites are either designed to do remote sensing of the Earth or communications, with some having unstated military applications.
