Mesbah 1? This satellite was supposed to be launched on 2005, damaged during integration to the Russian launcher and was retuned to Italy. What would be the logic to launch it 11 years after the satelite was ready to go?

Besides, I tend to think that all these NOTAMS will end in nothing.

A1482 has been withdrawn, so no launch June 1 or June 2!

Another possibility for a launch (Safir/Mesbah?) with this new NOTAM published today:

A1629/16 -  OID90 ACTIVATED,REF AIP PAGE ENR 5.1.3-9, DURING ACT AWY R794 BTN DHN VOR/DME AND TBS VOR/DME AND AWY Z4 BTN ANK VOR/DME AND ULETA CLSD. JUN 19-20/0830-1030, 19 JUN 08:30 2016 UNTIL 20 JUN 10:30 2016. CREATED: 07 JUN 07:57 2016

Possible launch window: June 19 or 20 from 0830 to 1030 UTC

Edit: for a launch from Semnan one would expect OID51 also to be activated...

Iran conducts 4th missile test since signing nuke deal

The test, in violation of a UN resolution, failed shortly after liftoff when the missile exploded, sources said. The effort occurred on the evening of July 11-12 near the Iranian city of Saman, an hour west of Isfahan, where Iran has conducted similar ballistic missile tests in the past

I wonder what time zone the estimated launch time refers to.

I was meaning whether the "evening" related to some US time zone, GMT=UT or Iranian time.   If the report originates from the US they normally quote US time, often without specifying the time zone.

Given the picture is in the evening, it is most likely in Iran time.

The picture in my post is a archived picture of a missile launch conducted by the North Koreans in June 2016

The article is a bit vague. I don't think it will take the Iranians nine years to do a suborbital crewed launch! I think the 2025 date is for the orbital launch of E1.
