SHAFAQNA (International Shia News Association) – Iran’s military has launched production line for three domestically manufactured radar systems.
The production line for three indigenous radar systems was inaugurated and came into operation in the presence of Iran’s Deputy Defense Minister Brigadier General Amir Hatami in the southern city of Shiraz on Sunday.
Hatami said that the advanced radars are capable of detecting “stealth aircraft, warplanes and cruise missiles.”
He noted that these radars are able to operate in any fighting situation including electronic warfare and said, “they are even capable of detecting anti-radiation missiles (ARMs).”
“The Hafez Radar,” he explained, “is an active phased-array radar seeker with a medium range to be used in our air defense system. This radar is capable of detecting various kinds of aggressors and presenting their exact positions in three dimensions of angle, direction and elevation angle to the fire-control radar systems.”
“It is also capable of detecting targets from a distance of 250km, and at the same time tracking 100 more targets and updating their position information every few seconds for the system,” he maintained.
While Iran has attained self-sufficiency in producing important military equipment in recent years, it has also repeatedly stressed that its military is only on the defense tactic and poses no threat to other countries.
