On Sunday Sept. 22, 2013, during the annual military parade in Tehran that marks the anniversary of the outbreak of the 1980-88 Iran-Iraq war, Iran displayed a new indigenous passive phased array radar system for detecting stealth targets and cruise missiles.
According to Iran’s FARS News Agency, the radar systems was developed by the experts of Khatam ol-Anbia Air Defense Base in order to detect fast moving targes at any altitude and speed.
The tactical radar system has been dubbed “Silent Radar System” because it acts passively: it does not emit any radar wave and can’t be detected by the enemy systems.
Furthermore, it can be moved quite easily and can be installed in a short time.
Commander of Khatam ol-Anbia Air Defense Base Brigadier General Farzad Esmayeeli said “The radar is capable of detecting stealth (radar-evading) targets and cruise missiles and enjoys a high movement and mobility capabilities and acts in different ranges,” FARS reported.
Actually, this is not the first time Iran announces a new radar system capable to detect radar-evading planes, cruise and ballistic missiles: in May 2012, the IRGC (Islamic Revolution Guards Corps) Aerospace Commander Brigadier General Amir Ali Hajizadeh announced a 1,100 km range radar system, called Gahdir, designed and built to identify aerial targets, stealth planes and low-altitude satellites.
Still, at least according to what the U.S. Air Force has recently disclosed, in March 2013, Iranian radars were unable to detect F-22 Raptors flying a few miles off their coastline: one the U.S. stealth fighters intercepted two F-4 Phantoms without them noticing it until the American fighter jock radioed: “you really ought to go home!”
In December 2011, Tehran announced that the country had installed advanced radars capable of detecting Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs): according to what Iran claimed, they could detect, track and shoot down any drone violating their airspace.
Anyway, in December 2011, Iran somehow managed to capture an RQ-170 Sentinel and later they proved to have put their hands on some smaller ScanEagle UAVs.

die of anger, iran is on it’s path to become a major hi tech weapon builder. crack all jokes you want you just show you are scared. because this adversary doesn’t fight with AK47 and RPG mind you even those who do like Taliban defeat Americans.
Of course, just like their vaunted stealth fighter, right?
None of you know anything about Iran or radar systems. You just want to think Iranians are bunch of sand n***s who don’t know anything about science. Keep going with those pathetic beliefs. If you want to mock them do it cleverly not like a low life troll.

The link annonce also another radar
What a bunch of bullshit. Yes some passive radars are capable of seeing that something is in the air but they cant detect the threat’s speed, course or range and they sure as hell can’t guide a missile to the target. But if the hostilities break out I can tell you there will be stealth jets flying around and I don’t have a radar at all.. What a bunch of idiots these goat herders are.. Russians were claiming the same, that they have a radar that can see stealth any time any where and they claimed that stealth is useless technology but then all of a sudden puff – here we have Russkies developing their stealth fighter jet (not to succesfully if I might add)..
