Despite the setbacks with its ambitious nuclear weapon program, Iran unveiled an unmanned flying saucer at a strategic technologies exhibition. The story was first reported by the Fars News Agency. The Zohal (Saturn) was publicly introduced at the exhibition that was attended by Iran’s supreme leader, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei.
As reported in the Daily Mail the capability of the Flying Saucer that “It is equipped with autopilot, image stabilizer and GPS and has a separate system for aerial recording with full HD quality.” Fars reported that ‘The device belonging to the new generation of vertical flyers is designed for aerial photography.”
The saucer is capable of operating outdoors and indoors.
The craft was designed and developed jointly by Farnas Aerospace Company and Iranian Aviation and Space Industries Association. The size and capability of the craft is unknown but most likely perform the role of a short range UAV. The devices will be controlled and monitored by a separate portable unit.
Such a device is probably a copy of the German designed Microdrone. The German manufactured quadrotor drone is an electric powered four blade UAV that can operated indoors and outdoors.
Iranian President announced the Iranian Space Agency launched a life supporting space capsule Tuesday. According to state news the spacecraft was carried into space by the Kavoshgar-4 Explorer. The capsule is now reported to be orbiting at an altitude of 75 miles.
The biggest threat to our security is Iran’s ambitious Space program, technology that can be easily converted in to intercontinental ballistic missiles.
Last year Iran claimed it launched a mouse, a turtle and worms into space. Despite all of the claims of Iran’s scientific advancement it has yet been proven. There is no independent verification that the launches actually happened.
In the past years Iran’s scientific and military developments have never been confirmed. The world’s navies have never encountered Iran’s radar evading flying boat launched four years ago. The unmanned bomber called the “Ambassador of Death” by President Ahmadinejad seemed to have disappeared down the Memory Hole.
Making stuff up will eventually catch up to the Iranians, bank on it.
