According to reports published in Russia, apparently based on information developed by the Russian Federal Security Service, the Gostaresh Research Center situated north-east of Tehran, was the primary Defense Industries Organization (DIO) facility engaged in missile engineering research. Gostaresh was said to be the home of the Missile Industries Group, also referred to as Department 140, and its associated industrial organizations and research facilities.
The NIMA GEOnet Names Server (GNS) was unaware of any such placename as "Gostaresh." The closet match (really, about the only match) using various wildcards seems to be "Gostar"
