Iran displays homemade laser defense warning system
font size    

Iran on Saturday displayed a homemade laser defense warning system which it said would enhance Iran's defensive capabilities in "asymmetric battles," the Fars News Agency reported.

The system, which was produced by the Defense Ministry's Malik- e Ashtar Industrial University, would empower Iranian military forces to "jam and divert various types of laser-guided missiles, bombs, rockets or shells," Fars said.

Fars termed the system as "another of Iran's first time productions in the military sector."

In a ceremony to celebrate the system's completion, Defense Minister Brigadier General Mostafa Mohammad Najjar said that the system enhanced defensive capabilities of the armed forces, particularly in asymmetric battles.

"Development of hi-tech with military applications is the main strategy of the defense ministry," Najjar was quoted as saying.

He said that all the "astonishing successes" of defense industries were a product of experiences gained in the war between Iran and Iraq in 1980-1988.
