Iran Unveils New Radars
TEHRAN (Tasnim) – Iran’s Defense Ministry on Saturday unveiled new aerial navigation and tracking systems, including two military radars.
The new products were unveiled at a ceremony in the southwestern city of Shiraz, attended by Defense Minister Brigadier General Hossein Dehqan.
One of them, Me’raj-4, is a ground radar equipped with anti-electronic warfare systems and capable of tracking 200 targets.
The other radar, dubbed Matla’-ol-Fajr 3, is employed for detecting targets in a range of 500 kilometers.
The other products include a DME (distance measuring equipment) -a radio navigation system used in civil airports- as well as a radar system used for metering fluid level at the storage tanks of oil refineries and petrochemical plants.
Iran has in recent years made great headways in manufacturing a broad range of military equipment, including 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.
