An Iranian army commander said on Saturday that Iran has built radars with “world’s modern technology” to monitor satellites and operations of drones and ballistic missiles, Tehran Times daily reported.

The radars “could monitor satellites in low earth orbit, monitor precise operations of drones and ballistic missiles deployed to destroy warships,” said Hossein Salami, second-in-command of the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC).

Salami did not provide further details on the specifications of the radars.

Meanwhile, Manouchehr Manteqi, head of Iran’s National Space Center, confirmed Iran’s ability to build low-earth-orbit satellites.

“We have been able to attain technology and infrastructures to design and build experimental satellites and explorer rockets and launch (satellites) to the low earth orbit,” he said.
