The implementation of the first decade space program, the announcement of a comprehensive aerospace development plan and space achievements, represent the country's empowerment in this strategic field. While space development patterns of developing countries are based on learning and technology transfer, but due to the country's specific circumstances, the model of space technologies development and pace capability building does not match them. The unit of scale is aerospace sector and its period before the Islamic Revolution until now. The type of research is applied in order to develop knowledge and in the action aspect is mixed method. After documentary studies and exploratory interviews, qualitative data were collected and analyzed by content analysis and coding. In a quantitative section, a questionnaire was used and descriptive and inferential statistical methods were used.In addition to defining the developmental stages and growth of space capabilities , 61 factors were identified in the form of eight technological capability components Monitoring and paying attention to these factors in the current state of affairs that the spatial sector faces many challenges at the policy level, prioritizing and allocating resources to advance spatial plans can accelerate the acquisition and development of the required technological capabilities.
