    Untill now I used to consider that, this technology is only russian, american, western european countries, as Japan, China, and India, even with  doubts, Taiwan.

    If someone among you could tell us if Iran is able to build this kind of hardware. Did Russia, or China help Iran ? How could Iran check this hardware ? Did Iran track some US F-22 near its borders ?

    I think it could doubfull, if a country such Iran could master this high-tech hardware, nevertheless, nothing is impossible with the genious persis engineers.

    Regards.

    That is a horribly written article. I can't tell if Iran is displaying more vaporware like their last fighter plane or if the writer has no earthly clue what the hell he is talking about. I'm guessing the latter, given the quotes in there. The writer seems to be using the term "passive" to imply that it doesn't emit anything at all...which would mean that it's not a radar, unless it's a receiver for a bi-static array. It makes more sense if they're talking about an actual PESA, which is actually not all that new if you want to build a ground-based system. Also, whatever the radar system they show in the picture is, I'm not sure that'd be a PESA or any kind of ESA.

    Iraqi factory "salahuddin 13" was building phased array radars 25 years ago... I don't see why Iran shouldn't be able to do the same. I presume there are dozens of countries able to produce such radars nowadays... It is 1970s tech!

    Yes... as long as we are talking passive phased arrays... the Mig-31 has had one since the late 1970s.

    Thx to all for your responses. I ignored that this hardware, is 70's origin.

    My question is :
    Does this iranian radar able to track F-117, F-22, F-35 ?

    I think Iran would be looking at using its longwave radars for such a task. If they had access to NEBO-M type VHF AESA technology with those arrays... they would be sorted.

    Iran is already using excellent Belarus Istok radar for stealth detection which help them locate and overtake RQ-170 which has arguably less RCS than even B-2.

    U seem to say that Russia, is somehow helped Iran -across Bielorussia-, regarding radar anti stealth ?
    I wish if Russia will help Iran, Venezuela, Bolivia, Argentina, Brazil, Syria, regarding this technlogy.

    Do you mean the Vostok radar? Vietnam has some of those as well.

    Thats the one. I saw it on few Iranian video clips from youtube.

    True and Belarus was also awarded with the contract to modernize all Vietnam S-125 systems. I would not be suprised if the same contract included older Vietnam radar modernization.

    Belarus has strong industry regarding command and radar systems and some unique solutions for modernization of Soviet SAM systems. It was smart of Iran to turn to Belarus regarding 

    air defense (besides Russia). China would be of course another excellent option.

    Iran claimed they successfully build AESA Radar ?

    Post  nemrod on Tue Jan 13, 2015 9:12 pm

    I could not neither confirm, or deny -as Israel usually did with in nearl all of the cases without proofs-.
    Untill now, I used to think that only great powers like Russia, USA, China, Japan, France, UK, India could produce indegenously this kind of hardwares.
    If someone has clues please let us know. I know that Iran is full of very skill and shining engineers, scientists. Nevertheless, not all are agree with the actual iranian governement, and many of them prefered to migrate in western countries like US.
    Moreover, Iran is in blockade, and could not access to hi tech. What does it mean ? China helped Iran to do so ? Russia helped Iran to do so ? Noone helped Iran to do so ? If this is the case it is a real prowess.

    Please if someone among you have clues.

    Iran unveils high-tech radar systems
    SHIRAZ, Oct. 19 (MNA) – Iran’s military has launched production line for three domestically manufactured radar systems.

    The production line for three indigenous radar systems was inaugurated and came into operation in the presence of Iran's Deputy Defense Minister Brigadier General Amir Hatami in the southern city of Shiraz on Sunday.

    Hatami said that the advanced radars are capable of detecting “stealth aircraft, warplanes and cruise missiles.”

    He noted that these radars are able to operate in any fighting situation including electronic warfare and said, “they are even capable of detecting anti-radiation missiles (ARMs).”

    “The Hafez Radar,” he explained, “is an active phased-array radar seeker with a medium range to be used in our air defense system. This radar is capable of detecting various kinds of aggressors and presenting their exact positions in three dimensions of angle, direction and elevation angle to the fire-control radar systems.”

    “It is also capable of detecting targets from a distance of 250km, and at the same time tracking 100 more targets and updating their position information every few seconds for the system,” he maintained.

    While Iran has attained self-sufficiency in producing important military equipment in recent years, it has also repeatedly stressed that its military is only on the defense tactic and poses no threat to other countries.

    Published on Oct 23, 2014

    Iran military unveiled a new advanced radar system to defect hostile aircraft and could be a part of their homemade s-300 system. TEHRAN (FNA)- Iran inaugurated the production line of three home-made advanced radar systems on Sunday in the presence of Deputy Defense Minister Brigadier General Amir Hatami.
    "The radar systems can discover and trace aerial targets, including stealth planes, fighter jets and cruise missiles, from low to very high altitudes," Hatami said, addressing a ceremony to inaugurate the production line of the radar systems.

    "Tracing ARM missiles is among the other features of these radar systems," he said, adding that the systems are being delivered to Khatam ol-Anbia Air Defense Base.

    Noting that 'Hafez' radar system is a 3D phased array explorer radar which can discover and trace targets from 250km in distance and engage with multiple targets, Hatami said the system can be mounted on Mersad defense system.

    He said the radar is completely tactical and has a 24-hour operational capability, adding that it enjoys operational efficiency in electronic warfare, in environments filled with parasite and jamming waves and in different weather conditions.

    The General said that the system can trace 100 targets and update their situational information in a few seconds to send it to the defense system.

    In recent years, Iran has made great achievements in the defense sector and gained self-sufficiency in essential military hardware and defense systems.

    Iran late September displayed a new home-made passive phased array radar system for detecting stealth targets and cruise missiles.

    The passive phased array radar system has been developed by the experts of Khatam ol-Anbia Air Defense Base to detect mobile targets at any altitude, track stealth targets and estimate their arrival speed and targets.

    The tactical radar system which can be installed and put into operation in a short period of time do not emit any radar waves and therefore cannot be detected by the enemy. That's why they are called Silent Radar Systems.

    Iran announced in August that it had started using new passive phased array radars to detect stealth targets and cruise missiles.

    Commander of Khatam ol-Anbia Air Defense Base Brigadier General Farzad Esmayeeli pointed to the designing and building of new passive phased array radars under the name of 'Silent Project', and said, "The radar is capable of detecting stealth (radar-evading) targets and cruise missiles and enjoys a high movement and mobility capabilities and acts in different ranges."

    Iran has made giant achievements in the production of telecommunication devices which work in various frequencies. The Iranian defense ministry has also produced home-made Radar systems with various ranges during the last few years.

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

    In May 2012, Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC) Aerospace Commander Brigadier General Amir Ali Hajizadeh said Iran is mass-producing Ghadir Radar systems in great numbers, adding that the radar system covers areas over 1,000km in distance.

    "This radar system can cover areas around 1,100 in range and its designing and production project ended early last (Iranian) year and is now being mass-produced," Hajizadeh told FNA at the time.

    In June 2011, the Islamic Revolution Guards Corps put into operation the new home-made long-range Ghadir radar system that enables its forces to monitor low-altitude satellites.

    The Ghadir radar system which covers areas (maximum) 1,100km in distance and 300km in altitude has been designed and built to identify aerial targets, radar-evading aircrafts, cruise missiles and ballistic missiles as well as low-altitude satellites.

    In December 2011, senior Iranian military commanders announced that the country has equipped its air defense units with advanced radars capable of detecting Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs).

    Esmayeeli said at the time that Iran could trace and shoot down small UAVs over its airspace from then on.

    Also, Esmayeeli announced earlier this month that the Iranian Army will test various types of radars and defense systems in massive military maneuvers late September.

    Esmayeeli underlined that various long-range radars and passive defense systems would be tested during the drills.

    The maneuvers would cover hard to reach valleys under extreme weather conditions, the commander added.

    Radar is an object-detection system that uses radio waves to determine the range, altitude, direction, or speed of objects. It can be used to detect aircraft, ships, spacecraft, guided missiles, motor vehicles, weather formations, and terrain. The radar dish or antenna transmits pulses of radio waves or microwaves that bounce off any object in their path. The object returns a tiny part of the wave's energy to a dish or antenna that is usually located at the same site as the transmitter.
