TEHRAN, Sep. 01 (MNA) – Commander of Khatam al-Anbia Air Defense Base Brigadier General Farzad Esmaili unveiled new domestically-made radar systems in Tehran.

In a ceremony held on September 1, concurrent with National Air Defense Day, the commander unveiled Bina and Nazir radar systems, having advanced technological capabilities and “unique” in the region.

According to the reports, Bina is a 3D high-resolution control radar which has great ability in detection and identification of potential targets with low radar cross section, and can fully fight against electronic warfare while also detecting stealth targets.

Nazir is a long-range tracking radar with high accuracy in identification of separate targets which can detect and identify targets with its low cross section ability.

The system is protected against anti-radar missiles and enjoys the ability to detect targets at ranges in excess of 800 km and a height of 100 feet.

A number of Iran’s other homegrown air defense systems, including the upgraded model of the Keyhan (Cosmos) radar is also another system unveiled previously. This new version is a fully mobile radar system with high resolution.

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

Esmaili said the country's Fat'h 14 radar would also be deployed in an air defense site, adding that the long-range system has semi-conductor technology.

The commander also noted that Iran would also produce and unveil new drones, but refused to give details due to security reasons.

The country has manufactured different types of state-of-the-art radar systems, including Arash-2 and Kayhan, as well as missiles, including Khalij-e-Fars (Persian Gulf), Mehrab (Altar), Ra'd (Thunder), Qader (Mighty), Nour (Light) and Zafar (Triumph).
