TEHRAN – Iran’s Defense Ministry has unveiled new aerial navigation and tracking systems, including two military radars, Mehr news agency reported.

The military products were exhibited at a ceremony in the southwestern city of Shiraz on Saturday, attended by Defense Minister Brigadier General Hossein Dehqan.
Standing out among the items, dubbed Me’raj 4, is a ground radar equipped with state-of-the-art electronic warfare systems capable of tracing 200 targets simultaneously.
The other one, Matla’-ol-Fajr 3, can detects targets within a range of 500 kilometers.
"The radar system monitors, discovers and traces flying objects in ranges up to 500km using a two dimensional spectrum analyzer," Dehqan said.
During the ceremony, a DME system, a distance measuring radio used in civil airports, was unveiled, as well.
Dehqan also unveiled a radar system for measuring fluid level at storage tanks in oil refineries and petrochemical plants.
“We used to import this product from foreign countries, but now, we’re able to produce it domestically,” he said, putting it on a par with the most advanced ones manufactured by foreign companies.
Iran has made great achievements in recent years in its defense sector and has been able to produce military equipment and systems domestically.
The Islamic Republic has repeatedly assured other countries that its military might is merely used for its deterrent effect, and has reassured regional nations that it poses no threat to other countries.
