The Iranian Air Defense Force has unveiled a new mobile radar system capable of detecting small aircrafts and flying objects.

Air Defense Commander, Brig. Gen. Alireza Sabahi Fard, unveiled the system, dubbed “Kashef-99,” at a ceremony in the Iranian capital, Tehran, on September 2.

Kashef-99 is a 3D phased-array radar capable of detecting small aircrafts and flying objects. The system can detect 300 targets simultaneously within a range of up to 12 km.

The new system, which is based on a regular pick-up truck, was apparently designed to allow for easy deployment and operation. Iran could equip its non-state allies in Lebanon, Syria, Iraq and Yemen with the system.

In the last few years, Iran boosted its air-defense capabilities with a number of home grown systems, including the 3rd Khordad, Khordad-15 and Bavar-373 medium and long-rang air-defense systems.

Iran is facing serious threats from the U.S. and Israel, which are working against the country’s interests in the Middle East and other parts of the world.
