“We will be able to enjoy a safe multilayer communication network among the ground, air and naval units by these achievements,” General Hatami said, addressing a ceremony to unveil the achievements in Tehran on Saturday.
He added that the new telecommunication and cyber capabilities will give a superior hand to the Iranian Armed Forces in combat against enemies’ electronic warfare.
“By using these electronic, telecommunication and cyber systems, timely identification of threats, analyzing enemy’s operational scenarios, special attention to new threats and reciprocal act appropriate to the threats have now grown possible,” General Hatami said.
Earlier this month, Iran held the 5th exhibition of its domestic cyber defense industry officially in Tehran’s Permanent International Fairground in a ceremony attended by relevant officials, including Head of Iran’s Civil Defense Organization Brigadier General Gholamreza Jalali.
The three-day event, organized by Iran’s Civil Defense Organization, aimed at providing the grounds for domestic players in the field of cyber security, electronic banking, industrial control systems, electronic security, and electromagnetics to showcase their latest developments and achievements.
Platforms and conferences were also held during the exhibition to help companies and aficionados meet and confer with investors.
The move came in line with the government’s push to promote the domestic manufacturers’ role in supplying the country’s needs in different fields, namely in the field of cyber security.
