TEHRAN (Press Shia Agency) – Iran’s Air Defense is capable of detecting any flying object of any size, a top commander said.
In comments on the sidelines of unveiling of new military products, Air Defense Commander Brigadier General Alireza Sabahi Fard said Iranian radars can detect any flying object with any cross-sectional area.
Iran’s Air Defense has gained the capability to detect, intercept and detonate all types of aerial targets, he added.
On the new air defense products unveiled at the ceremony, the commander said ‘Emad’ is a smart, advanced and unique system used to exercise and simulate various combat scenarios.
The war game system has been developed by local experts to counter the new threats, the general noted, saying only a few advanced countries are in possession of such system.
The Air Defense also unveiled ‘Kashef-99’, a 3D phased-array radar system that is carried on a vehicle, suitable for detecting small aircraft and objects.
Kashef-99 can detect 300 targets simultaneously within a range of 12 kilometers.
A few days ago, Leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyed Ali Khamenei commended the Iranian Air Defense forces for their contribution to national security, saying, “The country owes its security to Air Defense’ preparedness and wakefulness.”
