Iran Deploying New Indigenous Thamen Radar
Iran's air defense will deploy a new domestically-manufactured radar system in the near future, says the commander of the Iranian Army’s Khatam al-Anbiya Air Defense Base, Brigadier General Farzad Esmai
The new, completely indigenous Thamen radar system, which has been designed and produced by Iranian experts, will be added to the country’s air defense within the next 10 days,” Brig. Gen. Esmaili told IRNA on Monday.
In the first stage, the system will be stationed in one area and later relocated to other spots, he added.
The Iranian commander also noted that the army base has increased its deployment of locally-built information systems, which are ‘unique’ in the Middle East region, across the country.
