    Iran's Technological Advances

    December 09, 2013

    TEHRAN (Tasnim) – Commander of Khatam al-Anbia Air Defense Base announced on Monday that the country’s latest home-made radar, dubbed Arash, will be unveiled on December 10.
    The new radar has been completely designed and manufactured by the local experts serving at Khatam al-Anbia Air Defense Base, Brigadier General Farzad Esmaili told reporters on Monday, in a visit to a military base in the country’s eastern city of Birjand.

    The commander noted that the Arash radar, which he called a “powerful” one, is planned to join the country’s integrated air defense system on Tuesday.

    He also talked of plans to establish a new regional operation center, entitled “Great Prophet” project, in the near future.

    In a recent development in late November, the Iranian navy unveiled an advanced phased array radar system which has been designed and manufactured by the Iranian Navy experts.

    The new phased array radar system, dubbed the Asr (Era), was unveiled by high-ranking Iranian military officials in a special ceremony on November 27.

    Among the new achievements is a modern radar system dubbed the Rejal (men), which is said to be capable of detecting, tracking and processing nearly 100 targets simultaneously.

    Some other domestically-developed systems are the Rafee (lofty) – a modern digital altimeter - and ‘Passive’ radar system, as well as locally-developed phased array radar systems.

    New passive phased array radars are capable of detecting stealth targets and cruise missiles.

    Iran has, on different occasions, announced that its military might is in line with the country's defense doctrine of deterrence and poses no threat to other countries.

    Iran's Technological Advances

    Iran's Defense Minister says his country is now using laser systems to dramatically improve the accuracy of its ballistic missiles.

    Hossein Dehghan said missiles can now hit to within two meters (yards) of their targets, compared to 200 meters (yards) previously. His comments were posted on the ministry's website Monday.

    Iran frequently announced breakthroughs in military technology that are impossible to independently verify.

    Iran has a variety of missiles, some with a reported range of 2,000 kilometers (1,200 miles), enough to reach much of the Middle East. Commanders have described them as a deterrent, capable of hitting a U.S. base or an Israeli target in the event of a strike on Iran.

    The Pentagon released a rare public report last year noting that Iran has improved its missile capabilities.

    Iran Producing 15 rare Nano Medicines by using nuclear energy

    Iran Producing 15 rare Nano Medicines by using nuclear energy

    Fifteen types of nano medicines are currently produced in Iran, said an official with the atomic energy organization of the country who described peaceful nuclear energy as a great source of power for the nation.



    “Such great achievements prove that science is not monopolized by a few countries, and that self-reliance can lead to astonishing successes," Behrouz Kamalvandi, the spokesman for the Atomic Energy Organization of Iran on Wednesday.

    Iran uses the Tehran Research Reactor, a light-water nuclear reactor given to Iran by the US in 1967, to produce radio istotopes for medical and agricultural purposes.

    However, when the fuel supplies for the reactor were running low, the western countries refused to sell Iran the 20-percent enriched plates, causing the country to run out of fuel shortly in 2011.

    Iran has since stated it would make the fuel itself, despite technical hurdles that prevent all but a few countries in the world today from manufacturing such fuel.

    Iran has also a heavy-water research reactor under construction at Arak, in central Iran, which is intended to replace the life-expired Tehran Reactor.

    But the Arak reactor emerged as one of several big stumbling blocks in the marathon negotiations between Iran and the G5+1, as the western countries claim that it can be a source of plutonium - one of two materials, along with highly enriched uranium, that can be used for the core of a nuclear weapon.

    Reacting to claims made by some western governments that the heavy-water reactor now under construction at Arak will produce plutonium that can be used in a nuclear weapon, head of Iran's atomic energy organization, Ali Akbar Salehi said, "This, too, is one of their big lies, because the plutonium to be produced by Arak reactor is not the type that can be used in manufacturing nuclear weapons and is not fit for that purpose.”

    Iran unveils new radar able to detect small drone aircraft

    Dec. 18, 2013

    TEHRAN, Dec. 18 (UPI) -- Iran unveiled a new advanced long range radar system capable of detecting small drone aircraft, head of the country's air defense said.
    The radar system called Arash operates on UHF, VHF and HF frequencies and will improve the country's ability to engage in electronic warfare, Iran's semi-official Fars News Agency quoted Brig. Gen. Farzad Esmayeeli, head of the country's air defense saying Tuesday.

    "The powerful Arash radar is one of the most important achievements of Khatam al-Anabia Air Defense Base," he said. The radar will be stationed in an undisclosed location in the country in the coming days.

    The new radar does not emit radar waves and cannot be detected by the enemy, Fars said adding the radar is also known as the Silent Radar System.

    Official: Iran to Send Astronaut into Space in 2024



    TEHRAN (FNA)- Head of Iran's Space System Research Center Mohammad Ebrahimi underscored the countries' rapid growth in aerospace industries, and said that Iran plans to launch an explorer which can carry astronomers to suborbital altitude in four years.
    "If we can send 2-ton satellites to geo-orbit by next 12 years, we can be able to send 2-ton spacecraft into space carrying astronomer as well," Ebrahimi said.

    The official added that Iran will be able to produce appropriate capsule with high safety and large dimensions equipped with emergency escape system to send astronomer into space to suborbital flight in next 3-4 years.

    Earlier this month, Iran announced that it has sent the second monkey into the space on the back of an explorer rocket, and that it has brought back and recovered the living cargo.

    The second monkey named ‘Fargam’ which was sent into the space on the back of an Iran-made explorer returned to the Earth safely.

    The Iranian explorer was launched into the space using liquid fuel for the first time.

    On January 28, the Defense Ministry's Aerospace Industries Organization announced that it has sent a monkey into the space on the back of Pishgam (Pioneer) explorer rocket and recovered it.

    The Aerospace Industries Organization said it had sent the living creature into space aboard an indigenous biocapsule as a prelude to sending humans into space.

    The Aerospace Industries Organization said the capsule was sent to an orbit beyond 120km in altitude and carried out telemetry of the environmental data records.

    The explorer rocket was launched by the Aerospace Industries Organization and it returned to the Earth after reaching the desired speed and altitude, and the living creature (monkey) was retrieved and found alive.

    Former Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad had announced in 2010 that Iran plans to send astronauts into space in 2024. But, later he said that the issue had gone under a second study at a cabinet meeting and that the cabinet had decided to implement the plan in 2019, five years earlier than the date envisaged in the original plan.

    Iran launched its first research rocket on Feb. 4, 2009, when it also announced activity of its first space center and its first indigenous satellite - called Omid, or Hope.

    Re: Iran's Technological Advances

    It's interesting that for all of Iran's technological advances, it's industrial infrastructure, particularly it's energy sector remain in need of foreign expertise -- perhaps focusing on "owning" knowledge should be more of a priority, after all, Iranian need a robust economy than radars and missiles (something Pakistanis ought to think about).

    That's stating the obvious, Iranians should be asking Why they continue to make themselves to such - after all these sanctions have a historical precedent (Mossadeq and the sanction placed by the English on the Iranian oil industry) ---- it's should have been unacceptable to not have NIOC, not be a technology leader, I don't mean buying technology but creating it.
