A bird detecting radar with a range of 12 km and able to detect more than 300 targets.
Great for south of Lebanon :yu:

Can't expect too much from an IRIADF internal SSJ project but Kashef-99 could be quite useful as valley gap-filler.
Critical, up to 24km wide ingress valleys, foremost threatened by CMs can be covered.

It depends on the MTBF of the system and power consumption. If that is ok, it can align AAA and MANPAD teams and provide early warning.
It would take the role for which Iranian Kasta-2 gap filler would be a overkill, secure the blindspots.

Lets see if IRIADF is serious about this system.

According to twitter, it can operate 24h continuously. And it has 3D capability
The mechanical designer could have come with a better concept.typical box modeling.

and they certainly lack a powder coating line for a better painting.

Its a promising development, because its just a SSJ project. This could be the minimum technology used for Oghab and Separ SHORAD systems.

Compared to Tor-M1 and -M2 it has true and precise 3D capability but as for now shorter ranged.

Its on pair to Pantsir-S1, which is again longer ranged and outperformed by Pantsir-S2, which as AESA has better MTBF and much longer range.

Its all about MTBF and cost on such systems.

Its phased array 3D TWS capability and high update rate could even perform the task of the Skyguard radar but much more simple and lower cost for AAA.

More important is the full upgrade of the Square pair S-200 engagement radars. This was the last major S-200 subsystem that was not yet fully upgraded.

Thanks, will use this information in my presentation to my superiors which is scheduled for next week 😉

Great for the export market and surely PMU, Hezbollah, Syria and countless other groups/nations will be interested. It's small size makes it ideal for transfer to Houthi's as well.

Haftar and his forces would love a few dozen of these. It can add a decent boost to smaller air defense systems that can be the difference between life and death.

They said they will unveil 27 new products. We only saw the radar... any information?

Iran Not to Unveil All Air Defense Achievements

TEHRAN (FNA)- Commander of the Army's Khatam ol-Anbiya Air Defense Base Brigadier General Alireza Sabahi Fard underlined Iran’s astonishing progress in developing modern weapons and military equipment, and said the country keeps part of these systems hidden in a bid to surprise to enemies.

“Many of the Air Defense’s equipment cannot be unveiled to the media and we will use them in secret layers of the Air Defense when needed in a bid to disappoint enemies at their moves,” General Sabahi Fard said after unveiling a new 3D and phased-array radar named Kashef-99 on Wednesday.

He also referred to the unveiling of a “smart, advanced and unique” system named Emad which can model different war scenarios in exercises and wargames, and said it can be used to increase the operational power of specialists in all defensive fields.

General Sabahi Fard said Emad has been developed based on a highly advanced software and hardware and designed based on new threats, and added that the Iranian Air Defense experts ended the monopoly of the advanced countries by making the system.

Iran on Wednesday unveiled a new 3D and phased-array radar system capable of detecting hundreds of small flying objects simultaneously.
The new radar named Kashef-99 (Discoverer) was unveiled in a ceremony participated by General Sabahi Fard.
Kashef-99 is a 3D, phased-array and mobile radar which has been designed and manufactured at the Army Air Defense’s Center for Research on New Technologies and is capable of detecting up to 300 small-size flying objects from a distance of 12km simultaneously.

to better hide it, like in cities
I doubt you would use it in cities. Way too much background noise and the range is too small. Cities already fall under the defense envelope of Bavar-373 and S-300 along with medium and short range defense systems.

This seems to be to protect smaller kill zones in rural areas or around special points where a medium range and short range defense systems are either overkill or too expensive a solution.

They should try to double the range in future generations and At least use an Iranian military Humvee truck.
