The Islamic Republic of Iran has joined a select group of countries with 3 dimensional radar technology – an advanced technology used in weather monitoring, air defence and surveillance which only a handful of countries possess.
According to an Iran Press report, General AliReza Elhami, the deputy commander of the Khatam-ol-Anbia air defence base, speaking in the city of Birjand in eastern Iran said: “As far as air defence, surveillance and monitoring of air threats is concerned, the Iranian army now has its own Radar systems, remote sensing and information gathering systems, which are 100 percent Iranian — built here in Iran.”
The deputy commander of the Khatam-ol-Anbia air defence base added: “We have developed our own 3D tactical Radar, putting us on the ‘cutting-edge’ of technology, and among just a handful of countries which possess this powerful advanced technology.”
General AliReza Elhami added: “As far as command and control systems are concerned, we have developed a 100 percent Iranian-manufactured command and control system, known as the Great Prophet Command and Control System. This is considered a major achievement and a strong point of the Iranian Army and Air Force.”
Commenting further, General Elhami said: “There is virtually no exchange of information or collaboration in manufacture of command and control systems, since this is an extremely sensitive and critical technology, which bestows superiority in the battlefield, and most countries do not share this sensitive technology. Iranian Army scientists and engineers have manufactured the ‘Great Prophet Command and Control System’ here in Iran, and the system is being continually updated and modernised — a fantastic achievement for Iranian scientists.”
3D radar provides for radar coverage in three dimensions; unlike the more common 2D radar which provides range and bearing, the 3D radar also provides information on elevation. The information provided by 3D radar is particularly useful for air defence and interception. Interceptors must be told the altitude to climb to before making an intercept.
In February 2021, Iran unveils 2 major air defense plans.
Two operational and technology plans of the Iranian Army Air Defence Force unveiled including Bahman radar system.
The inauguration of two operational plans and technology plans was held with Commander of Army Air Defense Force Brigadier General Alireza Sabahifard and vice president for science and technology in attendance.
The two projects unveiled today include radar and rescue dimensions.
The first achievement of the advanced radar with the ability to detect small aircraft called the Bahman radar system and the other achievement is the design and construction of a self-propelled operating room called the rescue system.
At the official unveiling ceremony of these plans, Commander of the Air Defense Forces of the Iranian Army, said:” The Bahman radar system was designed and built to detect Micro air vehicles (MAV) without emitting any signals or signals and to be installed in all environments, even urban environments.
Brigadier General Sabahifard said: “The purpose of designing and building a rescue system is to create a tactical set in the form of a self-propelled operating room that, in addition to improving combat capability in the field of support, can provide services in critical situations and help people in need.”
