TEHRAN, Dec. 18 (UPI) -- Iran unveiled a new advanced long range radar system capable of detecting small drone aircraft, head of the country's air defense said.

The radar system called Arash operates on UHF, VHF and HF frequencies and will improve the country's ability to engage in electronic warfare, Iran's semi-official Fars News Agency quoted Brig. Gen. Farzad Esmayeeli, head of the country's air defense saying Tuesday.

"The powerful Arash radar is one of the most important achievements of Khatam al-Anabia Air Defense Base," he said. The radar will be stationed in an undisclosed location in the country in the coming days.

The new radar does not emit radar waves and cannot be detected by the enemy, Fars said adding the radar is also known as the Silent Radar System.
