Iran Deploys Long-Range Radar System on Iraq Border

Said Able to Detect Small UAVs
Brig. Gen. Farzad Esmaili, commander of Iran’s air defense force, said Iran has deployed a new, long-range radar system in the country’s southwest, bordering Iraq. The system, called Ghadir, is phased-array radar capable of detecting small unmanned aircraft.

“Discovering and tracking micro aerial vehicles (MAV) is one of the special qualities of the Ghadir radar system,” Gen. Esmailil said. (Fars News Agency/Reuters, 5 July)
