The Iranian Navy unveiled new achievements and products in a ceremony participated by the country’s high-ranking commanders in Tehran on Tuesday.
The achievements included designing and building a pool to carry out dynamic tests on vessels, Samen Project (designing and building a system to control the air and surface fire of missile-launching and Jamaran-class warships) and the LPI radar system.
Also during the ceremony, an optimized model of the Separ-e Darya (Sea Shield) radar System, a sea storm simulater, Damavand 1 project (designing and building a deco of passive radar system for the electromagnetic passive defense system), Compartment Project (designing and building a simulator to control possible damage on vessel units) and a system to detect enemy X-band radars were unveiled.
Deputy Chief of Staff of the Iranian Armed Forces Brigadier General Abdolrahim Moussavi, Iranian Navy Commander Rear Admiral Habibollah Sayyari, Lieutenant Commander of the Iranian Navy Rear Admiral Gholam Reza Khadem Biqam and other Iranian commanders and officials were attending the ceremony.
Earlier this week, Admiral Sayyari underlined that the country will continue to boost its military and defense capabilities.
“Iran’s Naval Forces are capable enough to produce their necessary equipment with the highest technology,” Admiral Sayyari said on Friday.
He announced that the Iranian Navy will build modern and advanced equipment for destroyers, missiles and torpedoes, but ensured that Iran’s defense products will serve “defensive and not offensive” purposes.
In recent years, Iran’s Navy has been increasing its presence in the international waters to protect naval routes and provide security for trade vessels and tankers.
The Islamic Republic has repeatedly asserted that its overseas naval presence is meant to convey a message of peace and friendship to other countries.
Iranian officials and commanders have repeatedly underlined that all military exercises and trainings of the Iranian Armed Forces are merely meant to serve deterrent purposes.
