Commander of the Aerospace Force of the Islamic Revolution Guard [IRG] Brigadier General Amir Ali Hajizadeh said that IRG will put a new satellite into orbit by the yearend using "Ghaem" launcher.

The mission of the satellite is reconnaissance, and it was placed in orbit after 480 seconds at a speed of 6.7 km/s.
