Radar (stands for Radio Detection and Ranging) has been the main factor in detecting and identifying air threats in the air defenses of world armies during the decades following World War II. Designing, manufacturing, deploying, maintaining and upgrading radars requires high knowledge and skills in various fields of science including telecommunications, electronics, software, mechanics and manufacturing. Iran’s rapid progress in designing and manufacturing a variety of radars required demonstrates the creation and application of appropriate scientific and technical capability in this field. These radars range from small,lightweight, man portable ground surveillance, and very large ones with a range of several thousand kilometers, samples capable of tracking ballis tic missiles and even low-orbit satellites.
The range of domestic production radars is very wide, but in this report, we will present some examples of Iranian-made radars.
