According to FarsNews, General Samad Aqa Mohammadi also referred to the strategic phased array radar system named Khalij-e Fars (Persian Gulf) which was unveiled on Sunday, April 19, along with Moraqeb, and said the system can detect all radar-evading planes and ballistic missiles 800 km away, as it uses the static phased array and 3D technology in low frequency. General Aqa Mohammadi said that Khalij-e Fars radar system has no foreign counterpart as it uses low frequency to trace the flying objects.

Iran on Sunday, April 19, unveiled Khalij-e Fars and Moraqeb radar systems in a ceremony attended by Army Chief Commander Major General Seyed Abdolrahim Mousavi and Commander of the Army's Khatam ol-Anbiya Air Defense Base Brigadier General Alireza Sabahi Fard. The long-range and strategic Khalij-e Fars radar is a 3D phased array system covering a range of over 800 km that can detect all conventional and radar-evading targets and ballistic missiles.

Moraqeb is also one of the pioneering precise 3D phased array systems with a range of 400 km which can trace micro-size targets in low and mid-altitude as well as drones and radar-evading flying objects.
