Iran has unveiled three homemade defense technologies, including a GPS system.
They comprised a one-megawatt Local Positioning System (LPS) transmitter, which Iranian defense minister Brigadier General Hossein Dehqan said, would render the defense forces independent of the Global Positioning System (GPS), Press TV reported Wednesday.
Dehqan visited the Malek-Ashtar University of Technology in Tehran, where the advancements were showcased.
The minister said the LPS apparatus can be availed of when the GPS proves inaccessible during critical conditions or does not provide the desired precision.
The second technology was named as a robotic vacuum plasma coating mechanism, which can be used in the manufacturing process of the vanes used in power plant turbines and jet engines.
As the last one, the university lifted the curtain off the vacuum arc re-melting furnace.
Dehqan said, "The furnace can be operated both manually and automatically. It can be used for the melting and the purification of titanium alloys as well as re-melting of super alloys and certain types of steel."
