Chairman of Iran National Space Administration:

UAV innovation center will be established in Iran.

According to the public relations and information center of the Vice-Presidency for science and technology affairs, Manouchehr Manteghi, chairman of Iran national space administration, mentioned the importance of unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) in the country on the closing ceremony of the fourth round of the competition of design and manufacturing of UA, stating: given the significant importance of UAV industry in the country, a UAV innovation center will be soon established, which will be the center for relations between elites and active knowledge-based companies of this area.

He continued: this center will receive the needs and ideas in the UAV industry, which will then be produced and commercialized by knowledge-based companies.

According to Manteghi, two products, including “commercial UAVs” and “small satellites”, in the aerial field of the country require more efficient management and reliance on domestic abilities. In this respect, use of the abilities of knowledge-based companies has been prioritized.

Chairman of Iran national space administration announced the acceptable elimination of security barriers to the development of UAV industry, affirming: we have taken some measures to create a UAV market. In this respect, one of the measures has been conclusion of a cooperation contract with organizations requesting for this technology.
