The Iranian Army Ground Force in a ceremony on Sunday unveiled 7 new products, including a dual launcher named Hadaf (Target) 2 and an intelligent combat robot dubbed Caracal.

The ceremony was held in the presence of Iranian Army Deputy Commander Brigadier General Mohammad Hossein Dadras, Fars News Agency (FNA) reported.

Several achievements of the Iranian Army Ground Force, including Masih (Christ) rescue robot, piston engines of drones, high frequency jump communication system, Caracal intelligent combat robot, a dual launcher named Hadaf 2, Gohar 4.4 tactical vehicle and a 26.40 upgraded vehicle were unveiled during the ceremony.

Meanwhile, the Iranian Army’s Air Defense Force unveiled a new home-made semiconductor radar named Soroush with the capability to detect and trace stealth targets and a smart radar integration system.

Soroush radar is capable of detecting targets with low radar cross-sections at short and medium altitudes up to a range of 220 km. Also, given the use of semiconductor technology, it is able to perform missions in any weather conditions and has a very high activity duration and high resistance to electronic warfare.

Another system unveiled by the Army Air Defense Force is named Misaq, which is a smart system combining capabilities of primary and secondary radars.

In addition to receiving information about the targets from primary and main radars, the system is able to combine the information given by secondary radars and all sensors and provide them to the integrated air defense network with high precision.

This system does not require manpower and operators as it automatically takes information and provides it to the integrated air defense network.

Earlier this month, Iran had also unveiled a new 3D and phased-array radar system capable of detecting hundreds of small flying objects simultaneously.

The new radar named Kashef-99 (Discoverer) is a 3D, phased-array and mobile radar which has been designed and manufactured at the Army Air Defense’s Center for Research on New Technologies and is capable of detecting up to 300 small-size flying objects from a distance of 12km simultaneously.

Iran has locally made radar systems with different ranges up to some 1,850 miles (3,000 kilometers).

For its part, the Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC) Aerospace Force unveiled a SAR imaging radar mounted on the Shahed 129 drone as well as a new generation of Zolfaqar marine ballistic missile with a range of 700km.

The two home-made military products were unveiled at a permanent exhibition of strategic achievements of the IRGC Aerospace Force entitled the National Aerospace Park in Tehran on Sunday.

The SAR (Synthetic Aperture Radars) imaging radar is mounted on the home-made Shahed 129 drone and is a type of radar which surveys the surface of the earth by means of high-speed and high-frequency radio waves. It uses a type of active data collection where a sensor produces its own energy and then records the amount of that energy reflected back after interacting with the Earth.

Among the specifications of the SAR radar is the ability to work 24 hours a day in different weather conditions and providing images with high quality and high resolution that can have different military and civilian applications.

Another equipment which went on display for the first time at the exhibition was a new generation of Zolfaqar marine ballistic missiles called Zolfaqar Basir (photo). This missile enjoys the ability to hit the targets at the sea with a range of 700 km. Earlier, the range of Iran’s ballistic marine missiles had been declared 300 km.

On Wednesday, 188 drones and helicopters, three newly-developed VTOL (Vertical Take-Off and Landing) aircraft, were delivered to the IRGC Navy.
