Radar Production Lines Launched

Iran has launched production lines for three advanced domestically designed radar systems in the southern city of Shiraz on Sunday.   

Deputy Defense Minister Brigadier General Amir Hatami said, "The advanced radars are capable of detecting aerial targets in low and high altitudes as well as stealth aircraft, fighter jets, and cruise missiles,” ISNA reported.
“Detection of anti-radiation missiles (ARMs) is another capability of these radar systems,” he said, adding that Iran aims to equip its military with state-of-the-art electronic systems.
The general described the Hafez (the Protector) as "the most advanced system" among the radars and said it will be delivered to the air defense base soon.
He said the Hafez "is a three-dimensional phased-array radar that can detect invading aircraft including warplanes, unmanned aircraft, and cruise missiles in low and medium altitudes," adding, "It can track 100 targets within a range of 250 kilometers and provide and update target position data to weapon systems."
In September, Iran unveiled two domestically-manufactured state-of-the-art radar systems – Arash-2 and Kayhan – capable of detecting enemy stealth aircraft and targets at high altitudes.
