"In the present decade that attention is mainly paid to the establishment of the fourth wave of defense industries to manufacture pioneering, innovative products, the AIO has focused its attention on designing innovative space and missile systems and increasing the number of innovative products," the AIO said in a statement released on Sunday to mark the 34th anniversary of the US embassy takeover in Tehran back in 1979.

The statement further pointed out that the AIO products in various space sectors, including "the designing and establishment of space launch centers and various types of satellite carriers as well as its products in the defense sector, specially its surface-to-surface, anti-armor, anti-air, air-based and naval cruise missiles have all empowered the Islamic Republic armed forces to enjoy an increasing defense and deterrence power".

Elaborating on its goals and objectives in developing a fourth generation of defense technology, the AIO said it aims to acquire increased precision, durability, radar-evading and tactical capabilities as well as improved efficiency by developing fourth generation products.

It further pointed to its advancements in various areas of space technology, including manufacture of various types of satellite carriers and launching satellites and sending living creatures to the space as just a few of its achievements in this regard.

The AIO said it now plans to increase investment on hi-tech and modern sciences to provide the needed infrastructures for manufacturing modern and innovative aerospace products with complex systems in the shortest time possible.

"At present this organization has plans to design and construct new space launch centers and more powerful satellite carriers," the AIO statement said, adding that it would release some good news to the public in the same regard in the near future.
