The Iranian media identified the radars as the Khalij Fars (Persian Gulf) and the Moraqeb (Vigilant). Amir Samad Aghamohammadi, head of the Army's Air Defence Research and Self-Sufficiency Jihad Organisation, was cited as saying the Khalij Fars is a bi-static (where the transmitters and receivers are not co-located) radar that operates in a very low frequency band and can detect any type of aircraft or ballistic missile out to a range of 800 km.
伊朗媒体将雷达称为“波斯湾”(Khalij Fars)和“观察员”(Vigilant)。报道援引陆军防空研究与国产化圣战组织(Army's Air Defence Research and Self-Sufficiency Jihad Organisation)的负责人阿米尔·萨马德·阿哈哈莫哈米迪(Amir Samad Aghamohammadi)的话说,“波斯湾”(Khalij Fars)是双基地(发射器和接收器不在同一地点)雷达,其工作频率非常低并且可以探测到800公里范围内的任何类型的飞机或弹道导弹。

The Moraqeb is a three-dimensional phased array radar that was claimed to have range of 400 km and the ability to detect small aircraft and missiles at low and medium altitudes.
