Iran’s Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC) Aerospace Force has unveiled a synthetic aperture radar fitted to the Shahed 129 drone. The two home-made military products were unveiled at a permanent exhibition of strategic achievements of the IRGC Aerospace Force entitled the National Aerospace Park in Tehran on Sunday.
The SAR (Synthetic Aperture Radars) imaging radar is mounted on the home-made Shahed 129 drone and is a type of radar which surveys the surface of the earth by means of high-speed and high-frequency radio waves. It uses a type of active data collection where a sensor produces its own energy and then records the amount of that energy reflected back after interacting with the Earth.
Among the specifications of the SAR radar is the ability to work 24 hours a day in different weather conditions and providing images with high-quality and high-resolution that can have different military and civilian applications.
