Iran’s air defense to unveil new IT achievements

TEHRAN (Tasnim) – Iran’s Khatam al-Anbiya Air Defense Base is set to unveil two new achievements in the area of information and communications technology (ICT) on Sunday.


The new apparatus will be unveiled on the occasion of the anniversary of the liberation of Khorramshahr, a city in southwestern Iran, which had been occupied by the Iraqi army in early 1980s. The strategic city was recaptured by the Iranian armed forces in May 1982.

Commander of Khatam al-Anbiya Air Defense Base Brigadier General Farzad Esmaili will reportedly attend the ceremony to unveil the two products.

Iran has in recent years made great headways in manufacturing a broad range of military equipment, including the air defense systems that use cutting edge technologies.

Back in April, Brigadier General Esmaili praised the outstanding features of Iran’s new home-made radar system, dubbed “Raased-32”, describing it as a great achievement in the area of detection and identification of different types of aircraft.

“Raased-32 (radar) system is one of the good achievements of the (Khatam al-Anbia) Air Defense Base in the sphere of detection and identification,” he said at the time.

Commenting on the important features of the domestically-made radar system, Esmaili explained that the Raased-32 can detect the flying targets’ direction, altitude and velocity.

It is capable of transmitting the collected data to the Control Center from a range of more than 15 kilometers.

And earlier in December 2013, Khatam al-Anbia Air Defense Base had unveiled a domestically-made radar, dubbed Arash.
