    Iran revealed a number of new air defense systems, including upgraded radars and electronic warfare equipment in an exhibition.

    Commander of Khatam al-Anbia Air Defense Base, Brigadier General Farzad Esmaili, inaugurated the exhibition of the latest domestically-made air defense equipment in Tehran on Saturday.

    One of the unveiled pieces of equipment was an improved model of the Keyhan (Cosmos) radar. The new version is a fully mobile high resolution radar system, Iranian media reported.

    Keyhan is long-range radar that uses mixed frequencies to identify small flying objects, and is fit for detecting large numbers of aerial targets.

    There was also a domestically-made IFF (Identification, Friend or Foe) system. Esmaili said the system can differentiate friendly forces from the enemy and detect up to 100 targets simultaneously.

    A number of other Iranian radars, including Bina, Nazir and Talash were also displayed in the exhibition.

    Iran has recently made great progress in manufacturing a broad range of military equipment, including air defense systems that use cutting edge technologies.
