2008.08.17 - (?) - Safir-1 - Semnan - test

I'm fairly sure that was a failed orbital launch with Omid.
Before the launch occurred, there were reports/claims that the launch of Omid was imminent; the claims that it was a suborbital test only emerged after the US reported they had observed the launch fail.

The rocket was named "Safir-e Omid" - based on subsequent launches, "Safir-e Rasad" launched Rasad, "Safir-e Navid" launched Navid, which would imply that "Safir-e Omid" was carrying Omid. I think the next launch was actually designated "Safir-e Omid 2".

Soheil, what is your source that Tadbir is the first payload on Simorgh? Also, how do you know that the alleged February 2013 failure was due to the payload being ejected early?

Thanks Soheil. Bing gives the translation of the article as

"Satellite space as the first important action contraption State bazdham will be launched.

According to the Department of Defense and security in the East, the President's Advisor and guardian of Akbar Turks spatial organization Saturday night during their presence in Tehran said that the network in fata nights last your dialog with Iran, fazeli was responsible for the space agency, the former as a surrogate activity is engaged in the Organization of the Turks, has been the first satellite in the eleventh State to be launched, "tact" name."

The Persion for Tadbir seems to be

تدبیر

which by itself means "Devise". I couldn't find a reference to Simorgh, which has Bing translation

سیمرغ

and which means "Phoenix". I also searched for Safir which is

سفیر

and which means "Ambassador", but could not find a reference. So as far as the article is concerned, we don't know if Simorgh is the carrier rocket for Tadbir.

The DIO seems to stand for Defence Industries Organization. Any chance your friends can provide photos of the launch vehicle or its launch? :-)

Regarding allegations of failed launches of the Safir in 2012, German space rocket expert Norbert Brugge suggests that the purported September 2012 launch failure is probably a failed suborbital flight of the Kavoshgar-5 rocket because the TEL seen in the satellite imagery near the Semnan launch site is too small to accomodate the Safir and is better-suited to accomodate Shahab-type sounding rockets (Brugge 2013)*. This possibility has yet to be confirmed by Iran, but seems plausible because North Korea lied about the outcome of its failed space launches by declaring them successful and Iran has not reported on any failed launches by declaring them successes. Moreover, the recent statement by Mohammed Rouhani's advisor concerning planned Iranian orbital launches leads me to consider the hypothesis that the launches of Fajr and Mesbah have been delayed for technical reasons (Iran knows that North Korea failed twice to get the Paektusan-2 into space in 2009 and April 2012 and is determined not to make any technical mistakes with the first flight of Simorgh, like a premature second stage shutdown).

Brugge, Norbert. Safir-1A/B IRILV. N.p., n.d. Web. 21 July 2013 <http://www.b14643.de/Spacerockets_1/Rest_World/Safir-1B-IRILV/Description/Frame.htm>.

*The Kavoshgar-4 is the only other sounding rocket launched from the Semnan launch site; therefore, the Semnan launch tower is big enough to accomodate suborbital sounding rocket of the same size as the Shahab-3, not just the Safir-1.

Completely wrong ... Kavoshgar-5 = Pishgam
