Iran UnveilsTwo New Defense Achievements.

TEHRAN (FNA)- Iranian Defense Minister Brigadier General Hossein Dehqan, in a ceremony on Tuesday, unveiled two major military achievements.

The Iranian minister said that the achievements include production of military prepreg and an outdoor site measuring radar cross-sections.

"Production of prepregs required in aerospace industry such as missile body and propeller helicopter has materialized the country's important objectives in air defense, and is a giant step to provide the required infrastructures in aerospace and air defense," Dehqan said.

He also said prepregs include uni-directional, bi-directional and tri-directional textile as well as textile made with glass, carbon and collar fibers which have been impregnated in resin and can be used in aerospace industries, wind turbines and pressure vessels.

The minister noted the product is clean, easy to use, makes less waste, has high speed and appropriate mechanical, physical and dynamic properties and costs low.

He also said the outdoor site measuring radar cross section facilitates design of the advanced radar evasive systems, extracting radar images of the targets and measure effects of environment such as wind, rain, fog and sea waves of radar cross section.

Tehran launched an arms development program during the 1980-88 Iraqi imposed war on Iran to compensate for a US weapons embargo. Since 1992, Iran has produced its own tanks, armored personnel carriers, missiles and fighter planes.

Yet, Iranian officials have always stressed that the country's military and arms programs serve defensive purposes and should not be perceived as a threat to any other country.
