Iran Unveils Two Indigenous Strategic Radar Systems

On April 19th, the Iranian Army unveiled two indigenous radars – Khalij-e Fars (‘Persian Gulf’) and the Moraqeb (‘Watchful’).

The ceremony was attended by Army Commander Maj. Gen. Abdolrahim Mousavi and Army Air Defense Forces Commander Brig. Gen. Alireza Sabahifard.

Khalij-e Fars is a long-range and strategic radar system with an operational range of over 800 kilometers. The three-dimensional phased array radar system can detect all types of conventional and stealth targets, including ballistic missiles.

Moraqeb is also a three-dimensional phased array radar with high precision and cutting-edge technologies. With a range of 400 kilometers, the new Iranian radar is capable of detecting aerial targets with high precision and resolution.

Moraqeb can identify various small targets, including stealth drones, at low and medium altitudes.

According to the unveiling, both systems were developed with collaboration between the Iranian Army and domestic knowledge-based companies.

The Moraqeb specifically was developed as a tactical radar for long-range aerial protection from the get-go.

Iran continues to praise its progress in developing its defense capability, and appears to adequately deal with much more funded adversaries such as the US, which can be seen with the ballistic missiles launched towards the al-Asad air base in Iraq, the damage they caused, as well as the continuous complaints by US Aircraft Carriers that they are being “harassed” by the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC).

The Tabas, Semnan province is located in northern Iran, while the city itself is located in the central part of the country, but somewhat closer to Afghanistan and Pakistan.

The reported range of both radars, furthermore, allows Iran to deploy them along its southern borders and easily monitor the activity in US bases in Qatar, as well as deployment in other parts of the country could allow it to detect activity in US bases in Saudi Arabia, UAE, Afghanistan, Oman and Pakistan.
