Iran Launches Special Command-and-Control System
Iran on Thursday launched a new home-made Command and Control system named Payambar-e A’zam in a ceremony in the presence of top military and air defense commanders.
The system launched operation following an order by Army Commander Major General Ataollah Salehi and in the presence of Commander of Khatam ol-Anbia Air Defense Base Brigadier General Farzad Esmayeeli and other senior military commanders in one of Iran’s sensitive sites.
After being unveiled and launched, the system was connected to all missile, radar, operations monitoring and assessment and other air defense points in the country.
The system can detect and trace targets, take decisions for the operation of the missile systems, decide about the type of weapon systems needed, assess and foresee hotile targets, and field commanders can easily take a final decision with the data provided by the command and control system.
Brigadier General Esmayeeli said that all instruments, air defense systems, fighter jets, missiles and monitoring systems take orders from Payambar-e A’zam Command and Control system from now on.
Iran unveiled two new home-made radar systems named Nazir and Bina on Tuesday with the capability of detecting radar-evading targets and fighting against electronic warfare.
The two radar systems were unveiled in a ceremony attended by General Esmayeeli through a video conference.
Nazir is a long-range and high-precision radar system which is highly capable of detecting targets in low radar cross section and is resistant to radar evading and anti-radar missiles.
The radar can detect all radar-evading targets and is capable of fighting electronic warfare.
Bina and Nazir radar systems have been mounted in the mountainous and plain regions in Southeastern Iran.
Elaborating on the specifications of the two radar systems, Brigadier General Esmayeeli said that they are fully home-made and unique in the region and the world.
“The radars have been designed in different frequencies and with jump frequency and also in (special) bands which cannot be heard by the enemies,” he added.
Esmayeeli explained about other features of the radar systems, and said they are multi-range radars, meaning that they can detect wide-body and stealth targets as well as small planes, including drones, in long distances before they can approach Iranian borders.
He expressed the hope that the two radar systems will be mass-produced within one year.
