Iran launches new long-range radar system

The Iranian Air Defense Force has unveiled a new indigenously manufactured long-range radar system with a high target detection capability, called Arash, during a ceremony in Tehran.

Khatam ol-Anbia Air Defense Base brigadier general Farzad Esmayeeli was quoted by Fars News Agency as saying that the newly developed system will enhance the country’s radar power in VHF, UHF and HF bands, while making its integrated radar network more powerful in any possible electronic war.

”The radar is complementary to the phased array radar system unveiled on September 1 and its repair and maintanence is very simple,” Esmayeeli added.

”The indigenized Arash radar system will gift an extremely high range to the country’s air defence network using very low energy."

Designed and built by Iranian scientists at Khatam ol-Anbia Air Defense Base, the radar has high capability in detection and identification of long-range targets and in electronic warfare (EW), and forms part of Iran’s new air defence system.

Esmayeeli did not provide any additional data or information about the new air defence shield or the radar system, which is scheduled to be stationed in an Iranian site this week.
