Iran has unveiled two new strategic radar systems, named “Persian Gulf” and “Moraqeb”, to further enhance its air defence capability.
The “Persian Gulf” strategic radar system has a range of more than 800 kilometres. It is a phased-array radar system which employs cutting-edge technology. The system is capable of detecting all conventional and radar-evading targets as well as ballistic missiles.
The other radar system unveiled is named “Moraqeb,” which literally means “one that monitors.” It is an accurate, 3D, phased-array modern strategic radar system with a range of 400 kilometres. It can spot airborne targets with very high precision and can detect small targets at low and medium altitudes. It can also spot stealth and unmanned aircraft.
The unveiling came in a ceremony attended by Army Commander Major General Abdolrahim Mousavi, who is also the commander of the Khatam-al Anbiya Air Defence Headquarters, and Brigadier General Allireza Sabahifard, the commander of the Army’s Air Defence Force.
