Iran’s Air Defense Base Shoos Away US Radar-Evading Spy Drone

URGENT: Iran's Air Defense Base Shoos Away US Radar-Evading Spy Drone

TEHRAN (FNA)- Iran’s Khatam ol-Anbia Air Defense Base warded off a US radar-evading spy drone after approaching the country’s bordering areas from Afghanistan.

The drone which intended to pass through Iran’s borders for espionage operations was dissuaded from accomplishing its mission after Khatam ol-Anbia Air Defense Base gave it a serious warning.

The Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV) had taken off from a US base in Kandahar and had advanced to areas 20 miles off the Iranian borders when it was alarmed.

Iran has downed many US drones and they have always started reproducing them immediately after conducting reverse engineering.

The Iranian version of the RQ-170 drone was manufactured through reverse engineering of the US drone, which was tracked and hunted down in Iran late in 2011, and has been equipped by the Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC) with bombing capability.

Back in October 2013, Commander of the IRGC Aerospace Force Brigadier General Amir Ali Hajizadeh said Iran moved as much as 35 years ahead in building drone engines by reverse engineering of the US drone.

The RQ-170 engines are the fifth generation and the engines of Iranian unmanned planes are the third generation, Hajizadeh said.

Iran’s Nazir Radar System Put into Operation

Iran's Nazir Radar System Put into Operation

TEHRAN (FNA)- Commander of Khatam ol-Anbia Air Defense Base Brigadier General Farzad Esmayeeli announced on Monday that the country’s Armed Forces put into operation the home-made ‘Nazir’ radar system with the capability of detecting radar-evading targets and fighting against electronic warfare.

“Nazir radar system was put into operation and from now on, no radar-evading flying object can enter the Islamic Iran’s skies without permission,” General Esmayeeli said.

“The radar is special to detecting the small flying objects and MQ1, RQ4 and U2 aircrafts and can easily detect and trace ballistic and cruise missiles and most importantly, the radar-evading aircraft,” he added.

In September 2015, Iran unveiled the two home-made radar systems of Nazir and Bina.

Nazir is a long-range and high-precision radar system which is highly capable of detecting targets in low radar cross section and is resistant to radar evading and anti-radar missiles.

The radar can detect all radar-evading targets and is capable of fighting electronic warfare.

Nazir and Bina radar systems have been mounted in the mountainous and plain regions in Southeastern Iran.

Elaborating on the specifications of the two radar systems at the time, Brigadier General Esmayeeli said that they are fully home-made and unique in the region and the world.

“The radars have been designed in different frequencies and with jump frequency and also in (special) bands which cannot be heard by the enemies,” he added.

Esmayeeli explained about other features of the radar systems, and said they are multi-range radars, meaning that they can detect wide-body and stealth targets as well as small planes, including drones, in long distances before they can approach Iranian borders.

He expressed the hope that the two radar systems would be mass-produced within one year.
