Commander of Khatam al-Anbia Air Defense Base Brigadier General Farzad Esmaili said here on Tuesday that new domestically-made radar systems can be used in different frequencies.


The commander made the remarks on the sidelines of a ceremony unveiling Bina and Nazir radar systems.

Esmaili said the radars are able to detect, identify and destroy all targets and drones before reaching the borders of the Islamic Republic of Iran.

“The radars have been domestically designed, implemented and built within two year by the capable Iranian youths,” he added.

A number of Iran’s other homegrown air defense systems, including upgraded radars and electronic warfare equipment, were also unveiled on Saturday.

One of the unveiled products was the upgraded model of the Keyhan (Cosmos) radar. This new version is a fully mobile radar system with high resolution.

Elsewhere in the exhibition, a variety of ground-based radar jamming systems were unveiled.

The jamming systems, which have been connected to the country’s integrated air defense network, are employed for electronic countermeasures in the fight against aerial threats.

Brigadier General Esmaili also unveiled a domestically-made IFF (Identification, Friend Qor Foe) system. The system can distinguish friendly forces from the enemy by detecting 100 targets simultaneously.

Iran has in recent years made great headways in manufacturing a broad range of military equipment, including the air defense systems that use cutting edge technologies.

Tehran has repeatedly stated that its military might is defensive in nature and poses no threat to other countries, IRNA reported.
