Iranian Army Unveils 7 New Home-Made Achievements

TEHRAN (FNA)- The Iranian Army Ground Force unveiled 7 new indigenized achievements in a ceremony participated by Deputy Commander of the Iranian Army for Coordination Rear Admiral Habibollah Sayyari on Sunday.

The new products have been developed by the Iranian Army Ground Force’s Research and Self-Sufficiency Jihad Organization.

The 7 achievements include a system for drone radar warning with the capability to detect and jam airborne surveillance radars on a variety of drones, helicopters and fighter jets. Also, a system to warn of the laser beams emitted from drones was unveiled today which enjoys the capability to detect laser-guided weapons and airborne threats, short-range air defense systems, including high-powered laser destroyer, and the ability to send alerts to the drones’ ground control and guidance station.

Another product unveiled by the Army Ground Force is a micro turbojet engine which can be used in drone systems, single-seater light aircraft, wave gilders, various missile systems, and can be utilized in propulsion engines and for launching the main engines of aircraft. Also the low weight, high speed, high flight ceiling compared to piston engines and the ability to carry cargo and increase flight duration in a variety of UAVs and using a variety of fuels are other capabilities of the system.

The next product was Tiam 1400 drone self-defense system, detection and tracing of guided radars and air surveillance of enemy drones. The system operates in all frequency bands and is capable of detecting various types of air surveillance radar signals and intelligently transmits the received signal to the jamming system.

Another system unveiled on Sunday was ‘mass flight’; a network-based flight system based on artificial intelligence which consists of a leading drone, follow-up drones and a ground station that has the ability to perform online or scheduled operations. Also, missions to identify, monitor and destroy enemy ground and flying targets, appropriate operational range and flight duration, the ability to network 3 or more aircraft by using a variety of Iran-made drones, with a secure link and a completely indigenous control guidance system are other capabilities of the system.

Meantime, another product was Taha 1400, a jamming system of air surveillance radars mounted on drones which is a system with appropriate power and covers a large operational area by using directional antennas and maintains the security of various drones flying over the enemy zones; also, it is intelligent, is low in weight and voltage consumption and has the ability to be installed quickly and easily.

The next achievement was upgraded ground-based jamming system to confront drone threats and remotely-controlled systems by jamming their navigation system. The ability to jam most frequency bands, the ability to operate in all operational areas and battlefields, rapid deployment, duration of operation, intelligent operation and having no need to operators are the capabilities of the system.

In a relevant development in April 18,tThe Iranian Army unveiled two newly-developed indigenized air defense systems, namely Zolfaqar and Majid with the capability to destroy cruise missiles.

The new defense systems unveiled on the occasion of the Army Day in Iran, have been installed on the home-made tactical vehicle Aras.

Zolfiqar is a low-altitude air defense system which consists of a mechanized shoulder-launched multi-launcher and Shahid Majid system includes an electro-optical fire control system and a dual-launcher. Both air defense systems are capable of destroying enemy targets flying in low altitudes, specially cruise missiles.

The Army Day parades were held in the form of motorcade in Tehran in the presence of Iranian Army Commander Major General Abdolrahim Mousavi.

April 18th is named "Army Day" in Iran, and the parade is held to display part of the country's military power.
