Iran Assesses Radar Capabilities in Air Defense Drills

Iran’s air defense units assessed the performance and capabilities of different types of mobile and fixed radar systems on the third day of Sarallah military drills in Southern Iran.

During the current phase of the air defense wargames, different fixed and mobile radar systems which have been manufactured and upgraded by Iranian experts and are under the control of Iran’s integrated air defense network were used.

Kasta and NEBO radars as well as the Iran-made Kashef (Discoverer) and Matla ol-Fajr radars were used to detect and identify aerial threats.

Iran’s Air Defense Unit started massive air defense drills, codenamed ‘Sarallah’, in Iran’s Southern regions on Monday to test the latest radar and missile defense systems.

On First day, the air defense units of the Iranian Armed Forces under the command of Khatam ol-Anbia base managed to detect and identify invading aircraft and started confrontation with the enemy warplanes using air defense systems and Scramble and CAP air defense planes.

During the second day of drills, Iran’s air defense force assessed the preparedness and performance of its air defense artillery and mid-range missile systems against low-altitude aerial threats.

The drills were staged by the air defense units of the Iranian Army and the Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC).

Iran’s home-made air defense radar systems can easily detect cruise missiles and drones.

Last week, Commander of Khatom ol-Anbia Air Defense Base Brigadier General Farzad Esmayeeli announced that the country’s Armed Forces have launched new radar and missile systems with various ranges.

Tens of radar and missile systems with various ranges have been manufactured and deployed in Iran’s defense sector so far and new systems are on their way to join the defense network during the 10-Day Dawn celebrations, which began on February 1 to mark the 33th anniversary of the victory of the Islamic Revolution in Iran, Esmayeeli said at the time.

Iran has recently renewed and upgraded the weapons and defense systems of its air defense units.
