Did you say OTH with 3000 km range?? As in three thousand and not three hundred (300)?جانشین پدافند هوایی ارتش: رادار ماورای افق سپهر بهزودی عملیاتی میشود | خبرگزاری فارس
Iran's first OTH radar 'Sepehr' with 3000km range will become operation in near future.
Army air defense has developed drones with 47000 ft flight ceiling
New missile of Bavar373 air defense system with 300km range will become operational soon.
Tactical Sayyad air defense system will have a 120km range, an increase from earlier versions which had a range of 60 and 80 kilometers, plus decreasing the number of required crews and vehicles.
exactly as 3 thousands , and we already had at least 3x Ghadir with1000+km of range and the good part is all of them are built indigenously .Did you say OTH with 3000 km range?? As in three thousand and not three hundred (300)?
Can it have a datalink to interceptor aircraft and feed them targeting data?Nice graphical representation how OTH work. As it can be seen,unlike conventional radars,OTH radars transmit and recive signals with help of ionosphere. Unlike conventional radars,OTH radar signal is transmited in to ionosphere,bounced from ionosphere,it reaches the target,than use same route back to OTH anntena. So,as it is clear,when we talk about range of OTH radar,it is not simple as with conventional radars. Because if you want OTH radar that will cover range 1000km from P.Gulf,deep in to S.Arabia...that OTH will be probably placed in central Iran... View attachment 884104
Can it have a datalink to interceptor aircraft and feed them targeting data?
Once a specific threat has been identified, can't the smaller radars in that direction get to work to create a targeting picture and feed it to an interceptor over datalink? Methinks that would immediately strip invading bandits of cover.OTH provide general location not specific enough to be classified as target data.
You cannot use it for targeting. They are more likely early early warning radars. Hard to jam and cover vast distances. Basically they will be the first targets of any attack on Iran, but by then Iran will get what it wanted from them—a crucial early warning that war has started.

Today datalink is something you can easily install every where,and it is part of every ground base and air borne communication system. Even original F14 have digital datalink,IRIAF F14 were delivered without datalink but that is very easily to install even 30 years ago IRIAF could do it,because F14 already have central digital integrated system,it can proces and share data by default,you just need datalink device installed,which is basicly modem+encription. On other aircrafts that could be something Iran can do easily today,and I think it is done on many aircrafts,at least those they upgrade. I saw Iranian made avionics for Kowsar and if you look specification,you can see that networking is available by default on every comunication device and computer managment devices..etc. Datalink was big deal 40 yrs ago,today you have modems on your smartphone..and it is not science fiction to feed that information in to existing system. Whole point of integrated air defense network is networking and data sharing,and just think about things we have access comercialy today...Can it have a datalink to interceptor aircraft and feed them targeting data?
