Iran breaking monopoly of communication technologies: IRGC commander
Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC) Commander Major General Hossein Salami praised Iran’s recent achievements in the defense sector and said the country has been able to break world powers’ monopoly of advanced communication technologies.
According to Tasnim news agency, speaking at a ceremony in Tehran on Sunday to unveil a domestically made military communication system, dubbed “Sepehr-110”, Major General Salami described the role of communications in various areas as “significant and strategic” and said, “Communications are known as the brain and nerves of the armed forces.”
The ability to link all the components of a defense system and transmit messages instantaneously can be reached by “communications”, he said.
The process of commanding, managing and controlling different levels of tactics, operations, and strategies can be facilitated through communications, the commander added.
He further described the communications as “one of the most essential tools of the armed forces” and said, “we are breaking the major powers’ monopoly of advanced communication technologies.”
Developed by IRGC experts, the ‘Sepehr-110’ is expected to enhance the mobility of command and control systems used by the IRGC forces.
The communication system can be mounted on various military equipment on the ground, in the sea and in the air, particularly in offensive operations.
The locally-manufactured system can fulfill commanders’ communication requirements in strategic, tactical or battle operations, in offense or defense, and in contingencies.
Using a wide range of technologies for digital communication in various circumstances, ‘Sepeher-110’ can work on different bandwidths to transmit voice, images, and data.
The Iranian system is also invulnerable to hacks, eavesdropping, radio jamming, and electromagnetic disturbance.
Iranian military experts and technicians have in recent years made great headways in manufacturing a broad range of indigenous equipment, making the armed forces self-sufficient in the defense sphere.
Iran maintains that its military might poses no threat to regional countries, stressing that the Islamic Republic’s defense doctrine is entirely based on deterrence.
