A number of Iran’s manufactured air defense systems, including upgraded radars and electronic warfare equipment, were exhibited on 29AUG15 in Tehran.
According to Alalam.ir:
One of the uAlalalmnveiled products was the upgraded model of the Keyhan (Cosmos) radar. According to the commander, this new version is a fully mobile radar system with high resolution.
Keyhan is a long-range radar that uses mixed frequencies to identify small flying objects, and is suitable for detecting large number of aerial targets in the electronic warfare. Elsewhere in the exhibition, a variety of ground-based radar jamming systems were unveiled.
The jamming systems, which have been connected to the country’s integrated air defense network, are employed for electronic countermeasures in the fight against aerial threats.
A number of other Iranian radars, including Bina, Nazir and Talash were also put on display in the exhibition.COMMENTARY: Radars Bina, Nazir and Talash are apparently going to be formally unveiled early in the coming week. This is what was disclosed by Mehr News Agency:
Speaking at a press conference Saturday morning at Khatam ol-Anbiya Air Defense Base, the base’s commander Brigadier General Farzad Esmaili pointed to the recent air defense domestically-manufactured systems including Fath 14 (Conquer) radar system, Talash (Endeavor) missile defense system, Hamyar (Assistant) inceptor system, SRR and IFF systems, Keyhan optimized system as well as a number of electronic warfare systems.
“Fath 14 is a state-of-the-art long-range radar system domestically produced to be attached to missile systems and is capable of discovering hostile aircraft or drones,” said Brig. Gen. Esmaeili.
He said Talash missile defense system is a long- and medium-range system with a domestic missile capability designed and manufactured by the Ministry of Defense and Armed Forces Logistics (MODAFL).
“Bidar is a surveillance and intelligence analyst system and its main characteristic is that it is untraceable and completely home-made,” he said.
Esmaeili also maintained that two other strategic, domestic radar systems dubbed “Dina” and “Nazir” are expected to be unveiled on Tuesday. According to him, these two radar systems have complex technological capabilities that make them quite unique in the region.
