By Rahim Zamanov - Trend:
Iran unveiled 21 electronic and radar systems in southern city of Shiraz on Feb 25, Iran's IRNA News Agency reported.

Iran's Defense Minister Brigadier General Hossein Dehghan attended the ceremony.

"Iran has managed to build the systems amid harsh international sanctions," Dehghan said.

Iran's military also unveiled some other new defense technologies including smart seekers for its ballistic missile systems, and smart composite armor in Tehran on Feb 24. The two were developed by the country's defense ministry scientists.

A smart seeker is a guidance system which provides high precession for ballistic missiles. The technology improves Iran's missile capability to pinpoint targets more precisely both at sea and on the ground.

Smart composite armor was another achievement unveiled by the research center of the Islamic Republic of the Iranian Army. The armor which is built of Shear Thickening Fluid or liquid armor can be used to protect military vehicles from armor piercing bullets.

Only some developed countries possess these state-of-the art technologies.

Several senior military commanders including the defense minister and armed forces chiefs of staff were present at the ceremony.
