Is there any news about this launch?
I guess the failure of Zafar-1 and the pandemic must have delayed the launch... Or not?

It's unclear whether the Zafar-2 was one of the three payloads mentioned in the Iranian state media as being launched by a recent Simorgh SLV launch.

Iran to launch 'Zafar-2' Satellite into orbit soon

TEHRAN, Sep. 10 (MNA) – Iran will soon put another domestically-built satellite, dubbed 'Zafar-2', into orbit, said the head of Iran University of Science and Technology.

Mansour Anbia told IRNA that Zafar-2 would be the fourth achievement by the university’s researchers in the field of satellite technology after building 'Navid' as the first satellite in 2011, Mobin as the second one in 2013, and Zafar-1 in 2015.

He noted that aerospace industries contributed 424 billion dollars to the global economy in 2020, a 70-percent rise compared to the last decade.

According to Anbia, the university has gained satellite technology to fulfill the country’s needs and is ready to export the know-how to other countries.

“Developed countries compete with the countries on a par with us to buy Iranian products and knowledge. But considering the recent progress of Iranian universities, other countries have no choice but to use our technical knowledge,” he added.

Tehran, IRNA – Iran’s Minister of Information and Communications Technology Issa Zarepour recently has said that the country will soon put the domestically-built satellite Zafar-2 (Triumph-2) into orbit.

Zarepour stated that it is predicted the satellite Zafar-2 put into orbit in the first quarter of the current Iranian calender year (starting March 20, 2023).

Earlier, Mansour Anbia, Dean of Iran University of Science and Technology (IUST) said the university has so far built four satellites, with Navid being the first satellite built in 2011, Mobin as the second one launched in 2013, and Zafar 1 in 2015.

Zafar 2 is the fourth satellite built by IUST, Anbia said, adding that 64 pieces are used to make a satellite.

The IUST is privileged for making satellites due to owning different technologies and being capable of meeting the needs of the country in this field, according to Anbia.
