Iran’s Navy has unveiled new technological achievements in the areas of naval defense, including advanced radar systems and defensive weapons.

The inauguration took place during an official ceremony with Commander Rear Admiral Habibollah Sayyari in attendance on Tuesday.

The achievements comprised a Towing Tank Project aimed at building a model basin for the hydrodynamnical testing of vessels, the Saamen Project, which focuses on designing and building a system for controlling the Jamaran-class missile destroyers’ naval surface and aerial fire, and the LPIR (low probability of intercept radar) project.

The ceremony further witnessed the unveiling of a project for the enhancement of the country’s Sea Shield Radar system, which integrates various radars, and the Mersad Project, which features the manufacturing of a digital component for Mark 46 lightweight anti-submarine torpedoes.

The curtain was also lifted off a storm simulation project, a project involving the building of a damage control simulator serving naval units, the Damavand Project, which oversees the designing of a passive decoy for misleading radars through passive electromagnetic defense, and the inauguration of a system used to discover enemy X band radars.

Iran has asserted that it only uses its naval might for defensive purposes and to signal a message of peace and security to other nations.
