Dubbed “Afaq” (horizons), the radar is capable of monitoring and tracking vessels at a distance of up to 200 kilometers, adding that it can also track aerial targets, defense minister said.

Speaking at the ceremony, Brigadier General Hatami hailed the production of the radar system and said it was developed thanks to the endeavors of domestic experts at the Defense Ministry.
