Iranian missile and satellite expert Hossein Dalirian said in a March 10, 2022 interview on the Arabic-language Al-Alam TV (Iran) that Iran's satellites will be used for "non-military purposes" and for obtaining "important and sensitive information" about Iran's enemies, such as the location and movements of Israeli military forces. Dalirian was interviewed days after the IRGC launched the Noor-2 satellite (see MEMRI TV Clips no. 9420 and no. 9423).
Hossein Dalirian: "These satellites will be used for non-military purposes. These satellites have the ability to obtain important and sensitive information from the enemies of the Islamic Republic of Iran. For example, these satellites have the ability to obtain very sensitive information regarding the moves of the Zionist entity, and the locations of its military forces and important bases.
"By using these satellites, we are capable of monitoring the enemies' movements."
