TEHRAN (Tasnim) – Two sets of Qadir long-range radar system, manufactured by the Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC) Aerospace Force, came into operation on Tuesday.
The two homegrown radars were connected to the countrywide air defense network in a ceremony attended by senior military commanders.
The IRGC Aerospace Force has so far manufactured and installed eight Qadir radars across Iran.
Qadir is a phased-array radar system that identifies aerial targets on the basis of 3-dimensional detection with multiple detectors. The system enjoys nonstop monitoring activity.
Run by three operators, the system uses low signals, and is a suitable option for electronic warfare.
With an approximate range of 1,100 kilometers, the homegrown radar system can even detect targets with small cross-section areas. It can spot various stealth aircraft.
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.
