Iran-based Sarmad Electronic Sepahan Company (Sarmad) has produced two types of components identified in Mohajer-6 UAVs downed by Ukrainian forces. The Mohajer-6 –– which maintains intelligence, surveillance, and reconnaissance (ISR) and strike capabilities –– is produced by Iran’s Qods Aviation Industries (QAI) and has been used by Russian forces in Ukraine. Sarmad reverse engineers Western-origin components, such as servomotors and flowmeters, which are then used by QAI in the production of the Mohajer-6 and other Iranian-origin UAVs. QAI was designated pursuant to E.O. 13382 on December 12, 2013 for having provided material support to MODAFL and being owned or controlled by the IRGC.
An Iran-based company specializing in the design and manufacture of electronic and electromechanical parts, particularly avionics; has supplied components for Iranian unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) deployed by Russia in Ukraine.
Components bearing the company’s markings have been found in Ukraine in the wreckage of a Mohajer-6 UAV produced by Qods Aviation Industries (QAI) and of a Shahed-131 one-way attack UAV produced by Shahed Aviation Industries; components from both UAVs were copies of those originally produced by Japanese companies.
Products include inertial and satellite navigation systems, gyroscopes, digital compasses, servo motors, avionics for unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs), and remote control systems; product codes generally begin with the letters SES followed by four numerical digits, such as the SES5300 digital compass or the SES2300 servo motor.
Services include reverse engineering of electronic systems.
