A new surveillance radar, Alborz, and a command-and-control (C2) system, Borhan, were unveiled by the Iranian Army’s Air Defense Force. The Army has also tested a new version of its Mesad-16 surface-to-air missile (SAM) system.

The Alborz was described by the Iranian press as a 3D phased array radar that has a range of 450 km and can track 300 targets simultaneously, including low-altitude ones with small radar cross-sections. 

The radar that was displayed had a large planar antenna mounted on a trailer that was connected to a second trailer that presumably carried its power generator and control station.

The Borhan C2 system was reported to have been developed for short-range, low-altitude air defense weapons. Iranian news agencies reported that it is capable of analyzing data from electro-optical and radar sensors and sending this on to higher-level command posts for rapid decisions. It then tasks the appropriate weapon system with intercepting the target, as reported by
