Satellite hub ‘Homa’ launched in Mashhad

MASHHAD, Aug. 25 (MNA) – Iran’s satellite hub project dubbed ‘Homa’ was inaugurated today in Mashahd by governor of Razavi Khorasan and supervised by minister of communication through video conference.

During the inaugural ceremony of Iran’s satellite hub project dubbed ‘Homa’, Governor of Razavi Khorasan Province Ali Reza Rashidian deemed ‘communication management’ one of the most fundamental needs of the country during crisis, adding “loss of communication channels is the first incident to occur after natural disasters such as earthquakes hitting the country; this fact, as a result, necessitates the launching of satellite hubs.”

Noting that Homa Satellite Hub has the capability to establish communication while in motion from inside aircraft or automobiles, Rashidian added “the inauguration of this project will provide the ability to establish communication between various parts of the country in the shortest span of time during potential crises.”

With Iran being prone to natural disasters and especially having remote regions that are at times inaccessible, the inauguration of this satellite hub will definitely pave the way for much easier communications with such areas.

The main objectives of Homa Satellite Hub project are optimizing and upgrading satellite capacities, meeting the communication needs of special clients, the possibility of access to affected areas, as well as providing services to the remotest parts of the country through audio, data and video communications.

Homa Satellite Hub project was launched in Mashhad on Tuesday with an inauguration ceremony held in the Ministry of Communication in Tehran.
