Iran has field-tested its passive radar detection system and electronic warfare equipment during the ongoing Samen ol-Hojaj air defence exercise at Khatam ol-Anbia Air Defence Base in Iran.

Fars News Agency has reported exercise spokesman colonel Abolfazl Sepehri as saying that the radar system and electronic warfare equipment were deployed with the armed forces.

Iran is conducting a four-day exercise to test the integrated air defence network and the operational capacities of newly developed anti-aircraft weapons.

Domestically developed artillery, missile and composite defence systems capabilities to offset radar disruptions and enemy telecommunications were also tested.

The performance of integrated radar networks, surface-to-air systems and data collection equipment will be assessed in the next phase of the exercise.

Iran has also equipped its air defence unit sentinels with advanced shoulder-fired rocket launchers to boost air defence capability.
