IRI has 3 other satellites on space agenda

Fazeli noted that Kavoshgar-V weighing 285 kilograms will be launched to below 120 kilometers orbit in August.

NOTE: As usual with Iranian space news, there is a confusion between "in orbit" and "in space" in the english translation.

Kavoshgar-V is a suborbital sounding rocket, not an orbital mission

I could make a comment  but figured it's best not to.
Remembering those who made the ultimate sacrifice for our rights & freedoms, and for those injured, visible or otherwise, in that fight.

... and they are sending a monkey into space because they are not sure whether humans can tolerate spaceflight?

Iran to launch Kavoshgar-5 carrying living creature in Mordad/July 22-August 22

 Kavoshgar-5 carrier will be launched carrying living creature (a Rhesus monkey) into space in Mordad/July 22-August 22, the head of the Iranian Space Agency (ISA) says.         


Dr. Hamid Fazeli, on Monday in an interview with IRNA scientific reporter, said Kavoshgar-5 is similar to omid's Kavoshgar (the Safir-e-Omid carrier) in terms of structure which is launched into a suborbital altitude 120 kilometers away from the earth carrying a Rhesus monkey in Mordad.

"Five monkeys are being tested in order to be able to bear the environmental effects while launching," pointed the head of the Iranian Space Agency.

He added some environmental tests and assembly integration and test (AI&T) have been conducted on these creatures, and one of these monkeys will be launched by Kavoshgar-5.
Dr. Fazeli stated the Rhesus monkeys have been brought in from Southeast Asia and medical examinations are performed to determine their health condition right after quarantine, and Of course, the monkeys should be young and adolescent

I think he refer for the Shahab 3 derived Kavoshgar-1.

'Iran to send Kavoshgar 5 into space'
Mon Aug 22, 2011 2:39PM GMT

Iran plans to launch another domestically-built satellite carrier, Kavoshgar 5, into space by the end of summer, the head of the Iranian Space Agency (ISA) says.

“Kavoshgar (Explorer)'s cargo, with a weight of 300 kg, contains a biological capsule in which a rhesus monkey will be placed,” Hamid Fazeli said on Monday.

Fazeli added that the ISA plans to study the vital signs of the living organism and obtain results, “which are important for sending humans to space in the future,” Mehr News Agency reported.

Iran to launch new space mission soon
Tue Sep 6, 2011 9:10AM

Iran's Defense Minister Brigadier General Ahmad Vahidi has announced the forthcoming launch of a bio-capsule into space carrying a live creature.

Iran's domestically-built satellite carrier, Kavoshgar 5, is tasked with carrying the bio-capsule into space with a live creature over the next few days, IRIB quoted General Vahidi as saying on Tuesday.

Reports indicate that the launch could take place as early as Wednesday.

So, Iran launched and nobody detected the launch??


AFP: 'Iran Failed With Space Monkey Launch: Report'

    Paris, Oct 12 -- Iran acknowledged as a failure Wednesday its attempt to send a live monkey into space last month -- touted as its first step towards launching a man into space.

   "The Kavoshgar-5 rocket carrying a capsule with a live animal (a monkey) was launched during Shahrivar," an Iranian calendar month spanning August 23 to September 22, Deputy Science Minister Mohammad Mehdinejad-Nouri was quoted as saying by the ISNA news agency.

   "However, the launch was not publicised as all of its anticipated objectives were not accomplished," Mehdinejad-Nouri told reporters.

   He said the launch of a live animal into space was "strategic, and a priority," and expressed hope that future launches would attain more of the objectives set.

   On October 3, Iran indefinitely postponed plans to send a live monkey into space, without giving any reasons.

   "One cannot give a set date for this project and as soon as our nation's scientists announce the readiness (of the project) it will be announced," said Hamid Fazeli, head of Iran's Space Organisation.

   The project envisaged launching a capsule with life support using the Kavoshgar-5 rocket to an altitude of 120 kilometres (75 miles) for a 20-minute sub-orbital flight.

   The project was unveiled in February by President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad.

   At the time, Fazeli touted the launch of a large animal as the first step towards sending a man into space, which Tehran says is scheduled for 2020.

   In mid-March, Iran announced the successful launch of an earlier version of the rocket, Kavoshgar-4, carrying a test capsule designed to house the monkey.

   Iran has already sent small animals into space -- a rat, turtles and worms -- aboard a capsule carried by its Kavoshgar-3 rocket in 2010.

   The Islamic republic, which first put a satellite into orbit in 2009, has outlined an ambitious space programme amid Western concerns the rocket technology may be linked to developing ballistic missiles that could deliver nuclear warheads.

   Tehran has repeatedly denied that its nuclear and scientific programmes mask military ambitions.

That would be my guess. Over the past few years the US, which has much better launch detection capabilities than anybody else, has grown noticeably more reticent about letting out such information. Not sure why.

I thought that the Iranins were going to launch two apes on Kavoshgar 5, not a single monkey.

The photos at this site seem to show only one monkey at the base of the payload. This Iranian news report says that "a rhesus monkey" will be carried.

 TEHRAN (ISNA)-The Head of Iranian Space Agency (ISA) said Wednesday the country plans to send living creature into space by next 3 months.

 Reza Fazeli also added Iran would send Fajr satellite into space late May or early June.

 "The project of sending living creature into the space is in a satisfactory level and initial steps for the project were taken," he said adding the project would be probably completed by next 3 months.

 He also added Fajr satellite is to be fired into space by "Safir-1" satellite carrier.

As far as I know they still intend to launch a primate.

The Kavoshgar-5 satellite carrier with a bio-capsule holding a rhesus monkey is to be launched between August 19 and 20, he added.
The rocket will be orbited at an altitude of 120 to 130 kilometers above the Earth’s surface.

I think Kavoshgar-5 is suborbital flight, not satellite ???
