Russia-based Joint Stock Company Scientific Production Enterprise Aerosila (JSC SPE Aerosila) has performed ground and flight tests for HESA and facilitated the supply of auxiliary power units for the Iran-based firm.
HESA manufactures Iran’s Ababil- and Shahed-series UAVs. It was designated pursuant to E.O. 13382 on September 17, 2008 for being owned or controlled by Iran’s Ministry of Defense and Armed Forces Logistics (MODAFL) and for having provided support to Iran’s Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC). As of 2022, HESA has used the name Shahin Co. in contracts with overseas-based suppliers in an apparent effort to evade U.S. sanctions and export controls. Because HESA continues to procure sensitive UAV components under this name, OFAC is updating HESA’s entry on the SDN List to include Shahin Co. as an alias.
