During the unveiling ceremony, Sabahifard said that these announcements are part of Iran's new projects of the Air Defense, stressing that the Bahman radar system is the first of its kind around the world.

"One of the projects unveiled today is 'Bahman' Radar System and its example has not been seen anywhere in the world," said Sabahifard in the unveiling ceremony.

"One of the characteristics of this system is that it is passive, which can detect and identify all conventional aircraft and drones with a very small cross-section," he added.

Also, the Iranian official said that the mobile operating room is self-propelled in all battlefields and critical situations, including floods and earthquakes.

"It carries out its mission automatically," claimed Sabahifard.
