Iran Is Developing Satellite Jamming Capability

 TEHRAN (FNA)- Senior Iranian military officials announced here on
Tuesday that the country has developed a technology to jam enemies’
military and spy satellites.

Speaking to reporters on Tuesday, Commander of Khatam-ol-Anbia Air
Defense Base Brigadier General Farzad Esmayeeli stressed the necessity
of developing and using the latest electronic defense systems for future
electronic warfare.

Pointing to three electronic warfare systems unveiled today, the
commander said that necessary grounds have been prepared to bring iran’s
air defense capability to the cyber space.

“In other word, when we say we can deceive enemy’s military and spy
satellites, it means that we have been able to step into the (cyber)
space,” Esmayeeli said.

“That is a power we have achieved despite all the sanctions imposed on the Islamic Republic,” he noted.

The General further pointed out that Iran’s Defense Industries are working on the production of galaxy radars.

Earlier today, Esmayeeli attended a ceremony to unveil Iran’s latest and
most important achievements in the field of electronic warfare.

The hi-tech products which went on display included Shahed Electronic
Warfare Simulator, an electronic warfare tester of Radar systems called
‘Sabah’, and a GPS jamming system all designed and produced by Iranian
experts inside the country.

Electronic warfare is amongst the most crucial elements in air defense
and military observers believe that Iran enjoys an excellent capability
in electronic warfare technology and in designing and manufacturing
electronic warfare systems.

In September, Lieutenant Commander of Khatam ol-Anbia Air Defense Base
for Electronic Warfare Colonel Moharram Qolizadeh told FNA that the
country plans to equip its air defense units with a state-of-the-art
electronic warfare technology to be used for detouring enemies’ guided

He pointed to the key role of electronic jamming systems in winning
electronic warfare, and said Iran is seeking to go one more step to
deceive and detour the incoming guided missiles.

“When a guided missile is launched by the enemy, it is not possible to
destroy it through jamming systems, but it is only possible to redirect
it in a way that the missile loses its precision targeting capability,”
Qolizadeh added.

Last August, Iranian Defense Minister Brigadier General Ahmadi Vahidi
said that Tehran is capable of producing different kinds of electronic
warfare systems to fight back enemies’ possible electronic war against

“The communication tools and equipment produced by the Iranian experts
have helped us establish fully desirable land, air, sea and defensive
communications at tactical and non-tactical levels for the Armed
Forces,” he said at the time.

Vahidi described security, resistance, smartness, modernity, low volume
and weight as well as high efficiency as the special features of Iran’s
electronic products.
