Tehran: Iran plans to send its indigenously-designed satellite Sharifsat into orbit in the near future, a media report said Tuesday.
More than 100 students, alumni, and academics of the university have worked to design and manufacture the Sharifsat satellite, which weighs less than 50 kg, reported Iran`s Mehr news agency citing Reza Roosta-Azad, the chancellor of Sharif University of Technology.
